in reply to Is there a better way to learn Tk?

As others have mentioned, Perl/Tk may not be your best solution. Have you considered Tkx ? IIRC, our friends at ActiveState are pretty actively maintaining/using it.

As for books, "Mastering" is the best bet; I once saw "Learning" described as "quite possibly the nadir of O'Reilly books"...and I concur.

    Do you know what the performance/requirements difference between the two packages is, by any chance? What I can find seems to indicate that Perl/Tk directly wraps the C code for Tk, whereas Tkx wraps Tcl calls Tk. I can't imagine that not causing some performance difference.

    for(split(" ","tsuJ rehtonA lreP rekcaH")){print reverse . " "}print "\b.\n";
      perl/Tk is probably faster, but Tkx is more up to date in terms of features/widgets and will run on perl 5.6.
