I need to setup wxPerl on Solaris 9, Solaris 10, Windows, and MacOS
Should I be be using the ActiveState version or Perl, and if so, how do
I integrate wxWidgets? Are there ppms?
Is wxWidgets stable for all these platforms? Which is to say, can it be
used for production systems?
Thanks for your help and any pointers.

No, you need ActiveState only for M$Windows. Unix (including MacOSX)
On MacOSX you'll want to use the Carbon version of wxWidgets. My
understanding (from the wx-users list) is that wxCocoa isn't
production-worthy yet. Incidentally, 10.4 distributes with wx-2.5.2
and wxPerl-0.19. Make sure you build your app-bundles carefully to
take that into account: Your users will not be able to run your app
if dyld tries to pull in the wrong version libraries.
I dunno about Solaris. The supported systems list (http://
http://www.wxwidgets.org/platform.htm) lists several combinations, but it
was apparently last updated some time ago. Robin Dunn mentioned in a
message on wx-users that wxPython works only with wxGTK. Dunno if
that's important to you.
