in reply to Refresh Display in Perl Tk

I think you need to actually change the text in the label. This should make it refresh. I would suggest looking at this. When I did VB applications this is what we had to do so I think it would be the same for Perl. This has not been tested and it is just my weekend ramblings.
#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use Tk; my $top = new MainWindow; my $not_stopped = 1; my $id = ""; while($not_stopped){ $id = $top->Label(-text =>&gettime); sleep(10); }

[Discipulus]: Tanktalus my comment was about how to fork & join in tk?
[marioroy]: Oh, I've might of missed Discipulus's earlier response. I had gone to bed.
[Tanktalus]: ah, I don't even have the perlmonks site open in my browser :)
Tanktalus is chatting through his cbstats application :)
[marioroy]: Perl is so much fun.
[Discipulus]: Tanktalus i recently started a Meditation about marioroy's MCE suit of modules, but is even better to see a practical question answered than responses to my meditation
[Discipulus]: good night mario!
[Tanktalus]: yeah, I saw you post about MCE - the concept looks really really cool. I wonder how well it plays with Coro :)
[Lady_Aleena]: Hi guys. I asked this earlier but got no answer. Why is this dying at -exec: my @music_times = qx(find ~/Music/Albums/ -type f -iname '*.mp3' -exec mp3info -p "%S\n" {} \;);
[Lady_Aleena]: The error find: missing argument to `-exec'
