Learning wxPerl and wxWidgets
For those like me (Gabor) who lack imagination here is an explanation of the stack.
- wxWidgets is the name of the C++ library that can be installed either by your operating systems package management tool ( aptitude install wx-common in case of Debian ) or by installing Alien::wxWidgets from CPAN
- Scintilla is an editor component written in C++ and used in many editors. It has been included in wxWidgets ad the STC or wxStyledTextCtrl. Padre 0.92 and later will use Wx::Scintilla instead of old Wx::STC to provide the latest and greatest from Scintilla.
- wxPerl is the name of the Perl binding to wxWidgets (or wrapper if you prefer that word) - It is packaged as the Wx distro on CPAN. Some of the recent Linux distros might also have.
- Above all that comes our code (Padre in our case)
