in thread gtk2-perl: how to update image widget from callback?

http://www.perlmonks.org/?node_id=975036, which does not show a working solution, suggests this can be done by writing and updating a temp file and using a timeout to periodically clear and reload the image from there. Leaving aside the feeling that a temp file is a kludge, where does this timeout go? In or outside the main loop?

      Yes http://www.perlmonks.org/?node_id=975049 looks like it might be what I'm looking for. Will try out and get back later.
        That was it. Thank you guys. Much appreciated. That page would be a good one for the gtk2-perl docs and especially the tutorials.
