Does PERL Ghave GUI extensions?
Posted on 1998-06-26
We are considering using Netscape Browser to provide some display/browse/search
functions for our Client/Server banking application which uses Solaris 2.5.1, Informix
Work Group Server 7.2.UC2 and Win95 Clients.
We can view and search ASCII reports in the browser, but we want to create a user
friendly front end that can be used to start the browser on the Win95 client and provide
a list of reports to select and view, etc. The reports will reside on the Solaris server.
We are considering using a development tool to write this front end. Please compare
Perl, JAVA, and Tk/Tcl and tell me why we should use Perl.
Perl can only run on the Solaris, right? I,ve used a perl script for system administration
before, but I'd like to know if it has any GUI and if it has been ported to Win95 yet.
If I want to use a scripting tool that accepts input from the client, what will I need on the
Solaris server to support the capture and processing of the data received at the client?
I think I'll need an HTTP server running on Solaris right?
Please provide the details necessary to setup one or point me to a site where I can print
