in reply to Problem understanding how to use modules

use lib "/users/<myusername>/perl/Tk-DKW-0.03/blib"; is correct. Perl wants to load Tk/Menustrip.pm, so the directory name must end in blib, not blib/Tk.

Better solution: don't edit the example and simply set the include path from the commandline:

$ cd /users/<myusername>/perl/Tk-DKW-0.03 $ perl -Mblib examples/checkbox.pl
See blib.

Update: this half-installed directory setup is only useful for testing. If you want to use Tk-DKW productively, you must install the distribution. local::lib helps you to set up the necessary environment variables so that the make install will target your home directory, not the system location where you have no write permission.
