what is a gtk-widget ?
i want to build a GUI with glade. now my question is:

Is it possible to use a gtk-widget (like an info-box) for standart in and out so i can run a program in this info-box (in my case it is a perl program)? with system("foo") it will run in the xterm!

really don't undetstand what you're asking.... you can't use a plain gtk widget as a terminal, but there is a libzvt widget which can be used to form the basis of a terminal. if that's not what you mean, please try to be more descriptive about what you mean. should be checked too of course...

i guess this libzvt widget is exactly what i'm searching for. Do you know more about how to use it or do you know where i get more information about these special gtk widgets?

actually i *think* libzvt was replaced by vte form gnome2... it's a gnome widget - a kind of superset of gtk widgets even more related to the gnome environment.
