PERL TK logfile color coding error

ghosh123 has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I am using a scrolled text box for displaying my log results. The text box has a default foreground color(i.e blue) and default background colour (i.e white). But depending on some pass and fail results I am changing that colour to green and red respectively using tagConfigure.
But due to presence of some continuous special characer (like * ) in a line , the rest of the colour coding is getting destroyed.

For example if two consecutive lines contain :

The colur display is getting corrupted, can you please tell me why this is happening.
Below is the snippet of my logfile code and the tagConfigure sub routine :

Thanks in advance, please help. Assume that the below syntax are correct in my code, this is just to give you an idea of my code and how I am using this.

my $logfiletextbox = $frame->Scrolled ('Text', -scrollbars => 'osoe', -background => 'white', -foreground => 'blue'); $logfiletextbox-tagConfigure($tag, -foreground => 'green')if $result = +~ /pass/; $logfiletextbox-tagConfigure($tag, -foreground => 'red')if $result =~ +/fail/;

    Can you please post a minimally functional script that shows the actual problem? You don't show what $tag is, and I don't want to write a script just to test your erroneous syntax. :-)

    Maybe something like this?
    #!/usr/local/bin/perl use strict; use autodie; use warnings; use Tk; @ARGV = __FILE__ unless (@ARGV); my @data = <>; my ($name) = 'fail'; my $top = MainWindow->new(); $top->optionAdd( '*Scrollbar.width' => '6.5m' ); $top->Button( -text => 'Quit', -command => [ destroy => $top ] )->pack( -side => 'bottom', -fill => 'x', ); if ( $name eq 'pass' ) { my $lba = $top->ScrlListbox( -background => 'white', -foreground => 'green', -scrollbars => 'rse', -label => 'Text', )->pack(); $lba->insert( 'end', @data ); } else { my $lbb = $top->ScrlListbox( -background => 'black', -foreground => 'red', -scrollbars => 'rse', -label => 'Text', )->pack(); $lbb->insert( 'end', @data ); } MainLoop();
