in thread Tk::Entry not updating when textvariable changes.

Yeah, I know. I was up to my armpits in this problem and had to rush out the door for a meeting and some other stuff and wanted to get it out there to hopefully get some clues by the time I got back! Pretty presumptuous of me I know.

Penitently, jdtoronto

[Lady_Aleena]: I might have to go with options instead of a straight list.
[Discipulus]: if more than 3 go for named variables LA
[Lady_Aleena]: Discipulus, it is at 2 now, but with what I am thinking about, it could go to 3. However, only 1 is needed. The second and third are optional.
[shmem]: straight list or named parameters - that depends on whether (and how many) optional arguments you have
[Discipulus]: if so a plain list is ok, imho
[Lady_Aleena]: shmem, I already have the plugin installed, just not active.
[shmem]: if you have 1 optional argument, place that at the end of the list. If you have more, go for named parameters.
[Lady_Aleena]: 1 manditory, 2 optional.
[Discipulus]: my ($need,$opta,$optb ) = @_; .. if $opta..
[shmem]: all else leads to trouble, even if the third argument depends on the existence of the second. That may become brittle.
