in reply to Syntax error using Tk

Just a quick addendum to the fine answers given above...

I think it would have been helpful for you to try to eliminate the Tk aspect, at which point you may have spotted that the problem was (as Perl told you) a basic syntax error, and nothing to do with Tk itself. As you knew that the error was in line 17, cutting and pasting the relevant code portion into another file (or simply commenting out the surrounding bits) would have given you...
my @buttons = ( '9','8','7','6','5','4','3','2','1','0'); for (my $i = 9; $i >= 0; $i--) { my $button{$i} = $buttons[$i]; # for instance }
...which would produce the same syntax error, but would be easier to disect. In addition, playing with just this portion of the code may give you ideas on other ways of producing the results you require. (For instance, it's possible to eliminate the @buttons array completely, should you wish...)

Cheers,
Ben.

[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
[perldigious]: Discipulus: alternate link
[stevieb]: LOL you can easily replace "Helsinki" with "Alberta"
[perldigious]: I used to live at the top of a very steep hill stevieb, I can relate to the video. Literally used to have to build up momentum and try to force my vehicle to make it up the hill to park in my driveway properly... didn't always make it.
[choroba]: Why don't they use tire chains?
[perldigious]: First snow, probably not prepared right away choroba.
[stevieb]: it's Quebec... they do weird stuff there :) In the mountains, it is *mandatory* for trucks to use tire chains. Many passenger vehicles do as well (but it's not mandatory for them)
[perldigious]: That stuff can hit fast... like what we just got where I'm at. Saw a few people who had slid OUT of the roundabout I have to drive through to get to work, not used to the ice yet, take awhile to get the hang of it again and make vehicle adjustments.
[stevieb]: man, when the roads are glare ice, I don't even bother going to work or out... unless I absolutely have to, or was already out in the first place
