gtk (Multi-platform toolkit)
GTK is a multi-platform toolkit for creating graphical user interfaces. Offering a complete set of widgets, GTK is suitable for projects ranging from small one-off tools to complete application suites.
GTK has been designed from the ground up to support a range of languages, not only C/C++. Using GTK from languages such as Perl and Python (especially in combination with the Glade GUI builder) provides an effective method of rapid application development.
GTK is free software and part of the GNU Project. However, the licensing terms for GTK, the GNU LGPL, allow it to be used by all developers, including those developing proprietary software, without any license fees or royalties.
