Structuring Graphical Paradigms in TkGofer
In this paper we describe the implementation of several graphical programming paradigms (Model View Controller, Fudgets, and Functional Animations) using the GUI library TkGofer. This library relies on a combination of monads and multiple-parameter type classes to provide an abstract, type safe interface to Tcl/Tk. We show how choosing the right abstractions makes the given implementations surprisingly concise and easy to understand. 1 Introduction In his article `Why Functional Programming...
