in reply to Which Book is better?

Not a book, but this online resource is pretty good for learning Tk: http://www.tkdocs.com/tutorial/index.html. Every example is written in four programming languages: Tcl/TK, Ruby, Python and Perl.

Once you know the basics, original Tcl/Tk code can be pretty easily translated to perlTK. A lot of source code can be found here: http://wiki.tcl.tk/. Tcl, as it is, is not a complicated language, and it's easily read if you know Perl (although they're superficially similar).

Update:Of course there's a lot of perlTK code out there to learn from. My starting point for perlTK was Tcl/Tk.

[thezip]: G'day all. Apparently Strawberry Perl has issues with deploying Spreadsheet::XLSX for Perl 5.24.1. I need this module to maintain compatability with an existing script. I'm new to Strawberry -- is there a safe way to manually deploy this?
[MidLifeXis]: Where is it hanging up?
[MidLifeXis]: ISTR having a couple of issue based on undeclared dependencies around the time I was looking at that module on my last project, but cannot say if that was the module that I had the dependency issues with.
[MidLifeXis]: (5.22 at that time)
[MidLifeXis]: Yeah, I know, really helpful :-)
[Corion]: If all else fails, Spreadsheet::XLSX should be "installable" by manually copying the files, provided that the prerequisites are met
[thezip]: It fails in the "formatted 2-digit numeric" tests
