    See -validate => 'key', -ValidateCommand => sub { length( $_[0] ) <= 10 ? 1 : 0 } and the validation section of the Entry widget POD.


    With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'

    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
      Thanks!!
