Recommendations for perl script front-end

I've got a perl script that I've been asked to make more "friendly". I don't have much experience in GUI development so does anyone have any recommendations for a GUI toolkit that I might be able to semi-easily implement as a front-end for my perl script?

I guess it should have support for the basics -- text fields, selectable radio buttons, "Next", "Back", "Cancel" and maybe "Help" buttons. Nothing too fancy is really required but I just have no idea where to start for this project.

Qt and GTK both have quite good perl bindings, if the users are
running KDE you could have a look at kommander.

Thanks for the reply. This is going to be running on a pretty bare system and I'd like to keep it with as few packages as possible. With kommander, do you know if it's possible to compile this type of app statically?

Thanks again!

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
