in reply to Using a Tk window within a function

I believe what you're looking for is a Tk::Dialog (update: er, you're right, Tk::DialogBox is what I meant). I can't test it at the moment, but I'm nearly certain that calling $Dialog->Show() (which uses $Dialog->waitVariable(\$var) internally) will process events (ie, allow user interaction) until the dialog is dismissed and then return control to your procedural code, all without a MainLoop.

    Thanks bbfu, I think you're right! In fact I'm going to try using Tk::DialogBox, which allows any widgets to be displayed instead of just a text box. Thank you very much!
