I was just looking for some advice from more experienced programmers. I have read that Perl is capable of advanced GUI`s, web animation, animation in general , and games like with silverlight or flash. The three main things that state they can achieve this are SDL, GTK and TK. I go into command prompt type a line and they download? Then I do the appropriate thing with the apache mod I also need? Do any of these tools come with Xampp::Perl? Also any reccomendations on good programs, books and tutorials for achieving this would be appreciated.
