in thread How can I install Tk perl module in 32-bit operating system and Windows7 ?

This is excelent advice unless the OP already knows Tk and/or wishes to use existing Tk applications which ran under older versions of ActiveState perl.

Does anyone know of tutorials for converting Tk apllications to Tkx?

    Does anyone know of tutorials for converting Tk apllications to Tkx?

    See Tcl::pTk

    Whatever joy Tk might have brought you, Tkx is sure to take away

    Converting one to the other is madness

      In my understanding, the direct access method of Tcl::pTk appears to be functionally similar to Tkx. The goal of Tkx was to just put a thin abstraction layer and allow effectively direct access to Tk from perl. Not having enough experience with Tk either directly or with Perl::Tk, I can't speak to how effective it is.

        ... functionally similar ...

        Its functionally superior but the namespace/syntax changes/inconsistencies/kludges will drive you mad

        I've written many hundreds small less than 100 lines Tk programs, and about 10-20 Tkx ones ... Tkx hurts so much its not funny

        In theory it sounds great, but whatever edge Tk.pm gives you in terms of perlishness/memorability/quickness Tkx just rips it out with the inconsistency

        Tcl::pTk makes it bearable but needs more than Tcl::tkkit

        I stick with Tk

        If I absolutely must have the new Tcl/Tk widgets (which is never) I'll go for Tcl::pTk, but otherwise stick with Tk.pm

        Tkx -- never again voluntarily (only for massive cash)
