GTK, which stands for the Gimp ToolKit, is a library for creating graphical user interfaces. It is designed to be small and efficient, but still flexible enough to allow the programmer freedom in the interfaces created. GTK provides some unique features over standard widget libraries.
Tcl provides a portable scripting environment for Unix, Windows, and Macintosh that supports string processing and pattern matching, native file system access, shell-like control over other programs, TCP/IP networking, timers, and event-driven I/O. Tcl has traditional programming constructs like variables, loops, procedures, namespaces, error handling, script packages, and dynamic loading of DLLs. Tk provides portable GUIs on UNIX, Windows, and Macintosh. A powerful widget set and the concise scripting interface to Tk make it a breeze to develop sophisticated user interfaces.
Open Tool Kit (Otk) is a portable widget library for making graphical user interfaces for C programs. It emphasizes simplicity for the application programmer without eliminating capability. Based on OpenGL, Otk supports Linux, Unix, and other OSs neutrally and efficiently. It is simple and compact, and it strives for easy compilation and linking to other applications. In seeking to address several issues associated with earlier graphics APIs, Otk explores some interesting methods, such as window-relative layout instead of pixel-based layout.
BOND (building object network databases) is database development framework for rapidly creating applications. It creates live forms for the Web with AJAX and desktop applications using GTK. Using XML to define widget layouts, it drives the live forms to which SQL statements and methods can be attached.
Prima is an extensible Perl toolkit for multi-platform GUI development. Supported platforms include Linux, Windows NT/9x/2K, OS/2, and UNIX/X11 workstations (FreeBSD, IRIX, SunOS, Solaris, and others). The toolkit contains a rich set of standard widgets and has emphasis on 2D image processing tasks. A Perl program using Prima looks and behaves identically on X, Win32, and OS/2 PM.
The Zero Memory Widget library is as powerful as classic widget libraries, but it does not use a single bit of memory per widget. So with this library, there is no widget pointer/reference, instance creation/destruction, event handler function, functions to read/write data between widget and application, and so on. GUI programming with this library is done in the C language, and it is as easy as composing an HTML page.
GtkDatabox is a widget for the GTK+ library designed to display large amounts of numerical data quickly and easily. It allows for one or more data sets of thousands of data points (X and Y coordinates) to be displayed and updated in split seconds. It offers the ability to zoom into and out of the data, and to navigate through your data by scrolling. In addition to rulers and a simple coordinate cross, it allows you to add one (or even more) configurable grids like on an oscilloscope. Data may be presented as dots, lines connecting the data, or vertical bars. The widget allows you to easily transform pixel coordinates into data coordinates, thus allowing you to easily create powerful applications for data analysis.
