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

Hi all ,
I'm using Tk's Scrolled in the next way:
my $text = $nw->Scrolled('Text',
The problem is the text window does not role down
automatically for every text I send .
I made a little research and found the "jump=>" option
should do the trick , but it didn't work ( I think it is a known bug) .
maybe one of U monks have a solution.

    Try this snippet:
    #!/usr/bin/perl use Tk; use strict; my $mw=tkinit; my $textarea = $mw->Scrolled("Text",-scrollbars => 'ose')->pack; $mw->after(1000,\&filltext); MainLoop; sub filltext { for (1..100){ $textarea->insert('end', "$_\n"); $textarea->see('end'); $textarea->idletasks; $mw->after(50); #this is just to slow things down } }
