Are there strong reasons for using certain geometry managers? I ask because I have only just started with perl, and I find place by far the easiest to get right. However, it appears last - if at all - in all the docs and tuts I have read, and in the code I have seen, pack is by far the most popular, while I have not seen a single use of place. Since all these people know far more about perl than I do, I'm scared that using place will lay traps that I will fall into later.
TIA & regards,
Update: jdporter pointed out
in reply to another node I wrote
that place can prevent scrollbars from working.
