Calculator Form?? Not a request


Hi,

I am looking toward making a self-calculating form for my company. I am well versed in computers and have prior php and basic experience but need some tips and advice.

The program needs to do the following:

> Calculate building house A with Complexity B using materials #42 and be based on squarefoot for example. Simple quote calculations.

> Has to run cross platform. Must run on Windows and linux.

> Must be graphical.

> Should auto-calculate all info and put it together.

------------------------------------------

My question is what is a nice and easy programming language or tool I can use to achieve this? I had some experience in VisualBasic 5/6 but that was mostly limited to tutorials.

Anybody know of a tool that can help me on this quest? Forums?

I would like to preferable use all opensource/freeware tools.

Well perl or php should both work fine.

If you want a gui then they both have Gtk extensions which should be portable across most systems.

Assuming you want to use php since you know it already:
