libgnome2-canvas-perl allows a perl developer to use the GNOME Canvas
widget with Gtk2-Perl.
The GNOME Canvas widget is a powerful and extensible object-oriented
display engine. A GnomeCanvasItem is a GtkObject representing some
element of the display, such as an image, a rectangle, an ellipse, or
some text. You can refer to this architecture as structured graphics;
the canvas lets you deal with graphics in terms of items, rather than
an undifferentiated grid of pixels.

The perl bindings follow the C API very closely, and the C reference
documentation should be considered the canonical source:
This module is part of gtk2-perl.
