-orient: Yes. I meant that I was trying to add an 's' scrollbar to the original code offered by jeanine
. But when I added it, instead of getting a horizontal scrollbar across the bottom I got a vertical scroll on the bottom! Which is why I attempted to use the -orient option which is listed in the perldoc (although no valid values are given for it), but failed on my installation.
And yes, stuffing things into Tk::Text widgets gets a bit tricky (since you have to remember things like wrapping)... which is why I pointed out Tk::Canvas-- but Canvas widgets require a lot more thought and planning to use effectively.
