Xforms4Perl is an extension to Perl that provides access to most of the xforms GUI api library and, consequently, opens up the ability to write sophisticated X applications completely in Perl.
This is an almost complete implementation of the xforms API for perl. The only things missing are things that perl can do well enough by itself (such as directory list creation and name/value pairing. It is written as a perl extension, not a re-implementation for perl.
The package contains a number of demonstration Perl scripts and substantial documentation. The documentation that is delivered with the Xforms library is also largely applicable to Xforms4Perl.
