Description:

Now that Tk is no longer included by default in some popular distros of Perl, but Tkx is, I need to learn how to program using the latter. Are there any *good* resources out there?

  1. The documentation of the Tkx distro itself; it includes a Tkx::Tutorial.
  2. The perl.tcltk newsgroup. It is archived here.
  3. TkDocs. Has reference materials and tutorials. Perl examples are for Tkx, not Tk!
  4. Tcl/Tk documentation - the horse's mouth.
  5. Online documentation for ActiveState Tcl.

Also check out Tcl::pTk, which provides direct access to Tcl/Tk (that's right - Tcl) but via the Perl/Tk.pm syntax you know and love.

The reference I use is http://www.tkdocs.com/tutorial/onepage.html . All the examples for Perl use Tkx. Hope this helps.

    [perldigious]: Also coincidentally, I'm currently in the middle of a winter storm that has dropped 1 foot of snow and is expected to drop another. I might have to adapt this for customers/vendors who come visit and put it at the beggining of every presentation I give.
    [Discipulus]: the photo was removed... Cyrano de Berjerac was not of the same idea..
    [stevieb]: perldigious: video near our hq in Montreal. Here in Calgary, it's -28c... we've only got 3" of snow so far, but there are several feet in the mountains already
    [perldigious]: Snowshoeing time stevieb? I need to buy a pair so I can walk my German Shepherd properly through the country.
    [stevieb]: yeah, I snowshoe a fair amount in the mountains. I also use spikes similar to these very often as well
