Marc Saric:
 |Just a newbie question: I want to write a GUI-tool for a
 |FORTRAN-program-package (communication goes via input-and configuration
 |files for that program for now) and I had a look at wxWindows and
 |Tkinter. 
 |To me it seems that wxWindows provides a lot more prebuild highlevel
 |parts like notebooks and tree views. On the other hand Tk might be more
 |widespread, especially on UNIX (I plan to do the program for both UNIX
 |and Windows with a focus on UNIX due to the FORTRAN package).
 |
 |Any advice to which GUI I should use??

If Tkinter and wxWindows are your candidates, I'd recommend reading the
Tkinter vs. wxPython thread from June:

     http://x47.deja.com/=dnc/dnquery.xp?ST=PS&QRY=*&defaultOp=AND&DBS=1&format=threaded&showsort=score&maxhits=100&LNG=ALL&subjects=tkinter+%26+wxpython&groups=*python*&authors=&fromdate=&todate=

A little long, but averaging it all together you'll probably get a
well-rounded perspective.
