in thread TK - Best MainWindow management tips

Okay, using nmake worked.

For anyone wanting to know, the documentation is then viewed by typing "perldoc win32util" at a command prompt.

Also, I got the Win32Util function to doing a maximize and not going underneath the taskbar by doing:

#!perl use strict; use Tk; use Win32Util; my $mw = new MainWindow; my ($xx, $yy, $w, $h) = Win32Util::client_window_region($mw); $mw->geometry($w.'x'.$h.'+0+0'); MainLoop;

    It's better to write $mw->geometry($w.'x'.$h."+$xx+$yy");, as the taskbar (or any other obscuring bar) may be on top or left of the screen.
