It depends on your OS: iconbitmap will not work on Windows unless you recompile the Tk source code with your own image.

See B.5 at http://dev.scriptics.com/faq/tclwin.htm

Check out the $toplevel->Icon method. Here's a short example:

my $image = $top->Photo( -data => $imageDat, -format => 'gif' ); $top->Icon( -image => $image );
I tested this on ActiveState Perl 5.6.1 build 631, Tk 800.023.

# define the icon's data: my $my_icon_data = <<'EOF'; /* XPM */ static char *main[]={ "32 32 3 1", "# c #1655fe", ". c #ffffff", "$ c #fbc819", "................................", "................#...............", . ...the rest of your really cool pixel art here... . "......####............####......", "......####............####......",}; EOF # associate that with the image name 'my_icon': $main->Pixmap( 'my_icon', -data => $my_icon_data ); # use the image as an icon on any TopLevel: $toplevel->Icon( -image => 'my_icon' );

I've tested the above in Windows XP and Linux.

See Tk::Pixmap for info on XPM files.
