The Git repo for this module has been archived (made read-only), it will no longer possible to submit new commits to it. You are more than welcome to ask about this module on the Gtk-Perl mailing list, but our priorities going forward will be maintaining Gtk-Perl modules that are supported and maintained upstream; this module is neither.

Since this module tries to stick very closely to the C API, the documentation found at
is the canonical reference.
In addition to that, there's also the automatically generated API documentation: Gnome2::index(3pm).
The mapping described in Gtk2::api(3pm) also applies to this module.
To discuss this module, ask questions and flame/praise the authors, join email@example.com at lists.gnome.org.
Use gnome_app_fill_menu instead.
Use gnome_app_fill_toolbar instead.
Use gnome_app_create_menus instead.
Use gnome_app_create_toolbar instead.

Gnome2::Program->get has been renamed to ->get_program to avoid a clash with GObject->get.
Gtk2::Menu->attach has been renamed to ->attach_to to avoid a clash with gtk_menu_attach.
Gtk2::Menu->append has been renamed to ->append_from to avoid a clash with gtk_menu_shell_append.
Instead of argc and argv you simply pass in a list.
Gnome2::Program->init automagically fills argc and argv so just omit these parameters.
perl(1), Gnome2::index(3pm), Glib(3pm), Gtk2(3pm), Gtk2::api(3pm).
muppet <scott at asofyet dot org> did the initial stuff.
Torsten Schoenfeld <kaffeetisch at gmx dot de> took over between 0.34 and 0.36, and implemented lots of tests and missing functionality, and corrected several of muppet's mistakes.
