Python can do it for me?

P: n/a
Hello people! I think it is my first message here.

Well, I would go to start a Delphi database program, but now my client
want a program that runs in Linux. So I want to know your opinion:
what best language/IDE I can use for my purposes? I need mainly:

MySQL or Potsgree SQL ***remote connection***(it's the most important).
GUI interface.
Report generator.
Barcode printing.

I just remember that for now...

Maybe PyGTK can do it for me? What do you think?

What do you think?

Thank you! Bye!

I've done all of these very successfully in Python.

I've never used PyGTK, but it looks nice. I've generally stuck with
wxPython.

Really? I see Python is very good general-purpose language. I studing
TCL, C++ and Java too.

And remote conection? Do you know something?

Thank you very much! Bye!

You mean connecting to a database from a remote machine?

Most (probably all) database modules for Python allow you to access the
database using the server/host name of the database server. So as long
as your database server accepts connections from remote machines this
will not be a problem.
