in thread GUI Opinion

I see that I didn't include enough information in my question -- sorry (I'm a bit new). We are using a networked Linux envrionment so I won't have to worry about different platforms or machines. The program is not a client, just a standalone that currently accepts file input. I wanted to try to go the extra mile and add a GUI.

A web-based (unfortunately) will not be the best solution here. I know that I need a graphics package and really just wanted to know if the Monks had a favorite package. I don't know the advantages/disadvantages of any, so I was trying to save myself some time in investigating that.

    Personally, I like Perl/Tk. I have yet to use it in a production piece, but have done a few scripts just to learn how. It's easy to use and the docs are plenty. You have find out all about it at There is a good tutorial on about GUI programming with Tk as well. The screenshots are from a ActiveState (Windows) installation, but the code should work regardless.
