Gtk2 allows you to write graphical user interfaces in a Perlish and
object-oriented way, freeing you from the casting and memory management in C,
yet remaining very close in spirit to original API.
Gtk+ is a multi-platform toolkit for creating graphical user interfaces.
Offering a complete set of widgets, the Gtk+ is suitable for projects ranging
from small one-off tools to complete application suites. Find out more about
Gtk+ at

content before uploading to Debian.
* Build-depend on debhelper (>= 9.20120312~) to get better hardening
flags support.
