Updates after the break.
Progress is slow. Gui programming might not be the best way to learn a new language, which I suppose is why in my intro java class they just did everything gui-related for us (i.e. they gave us a DrawingPanel class and we just had to use drawing functions with it). It’s a big hassle. I miss the browser. Actually, things aren’t that bad. Working off of an example, I have the interface about where I want it. The big hurdle is figuring out how to draw. In the wxPython module, this apparently involves using various drawing functions in conjunction with a drawing context. I’ll also need to capture position from mouse click events. The module comes with a bunch of examples, so I should get it worked out sooner or later.
