Convince me to run the demo. What was wrong with Gnome2::Canvas? What's Cairo? What's Tk::Zinc? Why wouldn't I just use that if it was already better?
In other words, sell me on why I should care.
My criteria for good software:
- Does it work?
- Can someone else come in, make a change, and be reasonably certain no bugs were introduced?
Ok, point taken. I was just trying to make people aware that it is out there, and it works. I was going to put it in Meditations, but with the recent anal-retentive admonitions I received from jdporter about putting my things in the right category, it seemed Reviews seemed more appropriate. Just because it was a short (and to the point review) dosn't mean it wasn't a Review. Honestly, were you aware it was out there? I just made you aware.
If you don't realize the value (and advancement in Gtk2's gui technology) of having zoomable scalable text, and saving to pdf/svg, then it probably isn't going to be useful in any project of yours.
For further reading on why...
What is Cairo
and Tk's comparable module Tk::Zinc
I will come up with a code example to demonstrate the Goo::Canvas's unique
abilities, which separate it from the stagnant Gnome2::Canvas.
I agree with dragonchild; this wasn't much of a review. More like the first paragraph from the module's README.
