lepetitalbert has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hello dear Monks,

I'm looking for something like Tk::Entry but for more than one line,
or any method to get multiline user input.

I googled and supersearched but found nothing

Have a nice day.

    Did you really use Super Search before posting this question? If so what did you search for? Perhaps you need to phrase your searches better. A similar question was posted not long ago. From your description GrandFather's advice would seem to be a solution. I Super Searched for 'TK multi line'.

    A quick look at Tk::Text on CPAN will get you a number of useful widgets, incuding the basic Tk::Text and others with colour higlghting and XML display formatting as well some other nice tricky features.



      Yes I really googled and supersearched for 'tk multiline entry' and 'tk text input' and don't remember what else.

      I know Tk::Text but didn't find how to store the text in a variable.


      Have a very nice day
