  wxX11 can _emulate_ Win32 and GTK look&feel.

  wxGTK is (IMHO) much lighter than wxX11 in terms of CPU; it depends on =
more libraries, but this usually isn't a problem. Most important for me:
wxGTK is much more stable.

  You need to 'make' demos and samples separately.
(cd demos && make; cd samples && make).

RE: [wxperl-users] Re: wxValidator available via wxPerl #2
Dear Mattia, Thanks - this works a treat! I was so close... Anyway, now I'm up and running. I had noticed the 'Attempt to free unreferenced...' error - will await a fix. Now that I've got things working, what do you suggest/would you like? I feel that validators are the way to go when it comes to transferring data to/from controls (rather than explicit GetValue/SetValue calls all over the place) - I have had to implement a similar concept (though not as elegant) in a very large Perl/Tk application which we have developed. I see that you think we should create...

RE: [wxperl-users] Building wxPerl with wxWindows 2.3.1, and usingXML resources #2
Dear Mattia, Thanks for the info - I'm getting further! I've built xrc using: nmake -f makefile.vx FINAL=3D1 to create wxxrc.lib (rather than wxxrcd.lib), and this worked fine.
