Library for drag and drop to specific areas
What library can I use to implement the following kind of functionality on Linux:
My goal is a locally installed app so stuff like JQuery is out of the question.
Preferred languages are C, Perl. But it doesn't have to be strictly confined to those 2 languages.
Any hints to which part of the library I should look at will be deeply appreciated.
In case your question is still up to date:
You could take a look at QT, which is a very good gui framework (KDE is built on top of QT) http://qt.nokia.com/. It really has tons of features and stuff, and you can of course build GUIs that support drag & drop. The framework is in C++ though.
The GTK framework (base of the gnome desktop environment) has C as well as C++ libs (http://www.gtk.org/).
Of course there are other gui libraries and frameworks for linux (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_widget_toolkits), I for one, would always choose QT over any other framework, because the API and documentation is really great.
