Perl/Tk: For Beginners

by perl.j (Pilgrim)
on Jul 02, 2011 at 15:49 UTC ( #912471=perlquestion: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
perl.j has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I have been doing Perl programs for about a week now and I've been catching on very quickly (according to my family who already knows Perl).

They've been telling me that I should start SIMPLE Perl/Tk. There is just one problem.

I don't know how to use Tk. One of my biggest problems is when I tried to get Tk from PPM, the only thing that came up was Tkx. I got that but the Tk programs I wrote did not work.

I would greatly appreciate the help. I know I could research the problem but I find that PerlMonks gives me exactly what I need. Thanks in advance!

      Thank you but the links above show how to install/use Perl/Tk. Tk is not in PPM so I really can't use Tk. All I see is Tkx.

      Thanks for the info though.

        It certainly appears in PPM on MY machine. At the risk of stating the obvious, have you got the case right?

        F:\>ppm install Tk Downloading Tk-804.029...done Unpacking Tk-804.029...done Generating HTML for Tk-804.029...done Updating files in site area...done 822 files installed F:\>perl -V Summary of my perl5 (revision 5 version 12 subversion 2) configuration +: Platform: osname=MSWin32, osvers=5.00, archname=MSWin32-x86-multi-thread <snip>

        Regards,

        John Davies
