I found a page of "frameworks" for writing Python apps at http://wiki.python.org/moin/GuiProgramming
That led me to look on my workstation for the various 'mumble.py' executable files -- thinking that one might be
a useful utility application
that I might use as a pattern.
Sadly, most of the files that I find have few if any comment statements so they are very awkward to study for programming details.Q1.
I know that comment statements slow down interpreter execution, but is there some other reason
why there are no comments in "production python"?Q2.
Are there any tools that let me drag and drop application widgets onto a canvas to make the user interface
for a desktop application? (I'd prefer something that is agnostic of the implementation language if that is possible.)NOTE -- Back in those dark days of X11 work, there were tools that listed the various widgets in a dialog as a text file
that was read and processed at run time. Maybe something similar exists that uses XML or similar these days.Q3.
Does anyone know of an application or utility, written in python or similar, that would make a good
and useful program to study and learn from?
Thanks in advance,
