Gtk2::api is a mapping the Gtk+ C API to perl.
The Gtk2 module attempts to stick as close as is reasonable to the C API, to minimize the need to maintain documentation which is nearly a copy of the C API reference documentation. However, the world is not perfect, and the mappings between C and perl are not as clean and predictable as you might wish. Thus, this page described the basics of how to map the C API to the perl API, and lists various points in the API which follow neither the C API documentation nor the mapping principles.
The canonical documentation is the C API reference at http://developer.gnome.org/doc/API/gtk/ and http://developer.gnome.org/doc/API/gdk/
There are two main sections: 'BINDING BASICS' describes the principles on which the bindings work; understanding these can lead you to guess the proper syntax to use for any given function described in the C API reference.
The second section lists various specific points of difference which don't necessarily correspond with what you expect; this section is in three main parts: missing methods, renamed methods, and different call signatures.
