Well, of course you are absolutly right, but we are real programmers aren't
we. And all interface is english (with even less typos than in my postings

Given, that Visual Wx is meant for C++ as a lot of other GUI Builders.
Python and Perl is a side issue, but it seems to work. For a preview you can
only use:

Build - Run which starts the Python interpreter with the Python code. But
where is the code?

- Make a new Project
- Select a template that sounds good: Menu_Toolbar_Python e.g.
- Store it somewhere.

Now it is a little disappointing that nothing breathtaking pops up.
But you already can "RUN" it. Looks great.
Use the tree at the right hand side to open the design of MyFrame or look at
the source code (Python). In seems there is something missing (MyApp,
MyFrame), but you can open the sources using the L-Icon. The problem now is,
that the file types is set to Python and - hey presto - there are the files.

Well, all over a little immature but that's the situation with most of the
tools, which were meant for C++ und got a Perl/Python outlet...
