in reply to Perl/TK Main Window Destroy

Tk is an event-driven GUI toolkit, and provides numerous ways to hook into the event loop. You might want to use the after method (documented in the Tk::after man page). Example:

#!/usr/bin/perl use Tk; $timeout = 8000; $m = tkinit; # prevent pack() sizing the Toplevel down so # that we can still reach the controls $m->packPropagate(0); $m->Label( -text =>'hi', )->pack; $m->Button( -text=>'Ok', -command => sub { $m->destroy; }, )->pack; # invoke a callback after $timeout msecs $after = $m->after( $timeout, [$m, 'destroy'], ); MainLoop;

[Perl300]: ok, and for future if I want to use local box for something similar, then will Email::Sender:: Simple be a good choice?
[1nickt]: It's a framework that allows you to specify the Transport agent to whatever you want. You could even write your own.

[hippo]: In that case, use Net::SMTPS and also encrypt your content before you send it eg. with Crypt::GPG
