Gtk2(3)		      User Contributed Perl Documentation	       Gtk2(3)

NAME
       Gtk2 - Perl interface to	the 2.x	series of the Gimp Toolkit library

SYNOPSIS
	 use Gtk2 -init;
	 # Gtk2->init; works if	you didn't use -init on	use
	 my $window = Gtk2::Window->new	('toplevel');
	 my $button = Gtk2::Button->new	('Quit');
	 $button->signal_connect (clicked => sub { Gtk2->main_quit });
	 $window->add ($button);
	 $window->show_all;
	 Gtk2->main;

ABSTRACT
       Perl bindings to	the 2.x	series of the Gtk+ widget set.	This module
       allows you to write graphical user interfaces in	a Perlish and object-
       oriented	way, freeing you from the casting and memory management	in C,
       yet remaining very close	in spirit to original API.

DESCRIPTION
       The Gtk2	module allows a	Perl developer to use the Gtk+ graphical user
       interface library.  Find	out more about Gtk+ at http://www.gtk.org.

       The GTK+	Reference Manual is also a handy companion when	writing	Gtk
       programs	in any language.  http://developer.gnome.org/doc/API/2.0/gtk/
       The Perl	bindings follow	the C API very closely,	and the	C reference
       documentation should be considered the canonical	source.

       To discuss gtk2-perl, ask questions and flame/praise the	authors, join
       gtk-perl-list@gnome.org at lists.gnome.org.

       Also have a look	at the gtk2-perl website and sourceforge project page,
       http://gtk2-perl.sourceforge.net

INITIALIZATION
	 use Gtk2 qw/-init/;
	 use Gtk2 qw/-init -threads-init/;

       -init
	   Equivalent to Gtk2->init, called to initialize GLIB and GTK+. Just
	   about every Gtk2-Perl script	should do "use Gtk2 -init"; This
	   initialization should take place before using any other Gtk2
	   functions in	your GUI applications. It will initialize everything
	   needed to operate the toolkit and parses some standard command line
	   options. @ARGV is adjusted accordingly so your own code will	never
	   see those standard arguments.

       -threads-init
	   Equivalent to Gtk2::Gdk::Threads->init, called to initialze/enable
	   gdk's thread	safety mechanisms so that gdk can be accessed from
	   multiple threads when used in conjunction with
	   Gtk2::Gdk::Threads->enter and Gtk2::Gdk::Threads->leave. If invoked
	   as Gtk2::Gdk::Threads->init it should be done before	Gtk2->init is
	   called, if done by "use Gtk2	-init -threads-init" order does	not
	   matter.

EXPORTS
       Gtk2 exports nothing by default,	but some constants are available upon
       request.

       Tag: constants
	     GTK_PRIORITY_RESIZE

	     GTK_PATH_PRIO_LOWEST
	     GTK_PATH_PRIO_GTK
	     GTK_PATH_PRIO_APPLICATION
	     GTK_PATH_PRIO_THEME
	     GTK_PATH_PRIO_RC
	     GTK_PATH_PRIO_HIGHEST

	     GDK_PRIORITY_EVENTS
	     GDK_PRIORITY_REDRAW
	     GDK_CURRENT_TIME

       See Glib	for other standard priority levels.

SEE ALSO
       perl(1),	Glib(3pm), Pango(3pm).

       Gtk2::Gdk::Keysyms(3pm) contains	a hash of key codes, culled from
       gdk/gdkkeysyms.h

       Gtk2::api(3pm) describes	how to map the C API into Perl,	and some of
       the important differences in the	Perl bindings.

       Gtk2::Helper(3pm) contains stuff	that makes writing Gtk2	programs a
       little easier.

       Gtk2::SimpleList(3pm) makes the GtkListStore and	GtkTreeModel a lot
       easier to use.

       Gtk2::Pango(3pm)	exports	various	little-used but	important constants
       you may need to work with pango directly.

       Gtk2::index(3pm)	lists the autogenerated	api documentation pod files
       for Gtk2.

       Gtk2 also provides code to make it relatively painless to create	Perl
       wrappers	for other GLib/Gtk-based libraries.  See Gtk2::CodeGen,
       ExtUtils::PkgConfig, and	ExtUtils::Depends.  If you're writing
       bindings, you'll	probably also be interested in Gtk2::devel, which is a
       supplement to Glib::devel and Glib::xsapi.  The Binding Howto, at
       http://gtk2-perl.sourceforge.net/doc/binding_howto.pod.html, ties it
       all together.
