Tk not supported in ActiveState Perl 5.14+

slugger415 has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hello monks, I am distressed to see that the Tk module is not supported in later versions of the ActiveState version of Perl http://code.activestate.com/ppm/Tk/. I have new users wanting to use a script I wrote a few years ago that are unable to install the module. What are my choices? I see a module called Tkx but know nothing about it -- would it be difficult to port my script over to that? I also use Tk::Dialog which isn't in the list.

Thank you.

    Tkx and Perl Tk are not compatible. Different APIs. As other said, look for a different PPM repository, ActiveState's build farm is notorious for not working.

[atcroft]: Lady_Aleena: I found the L<name|section> syntax, which describes linking to a perl manual page, and L<text|url> to link to a web page. The reason I asked was because I was on search.cpan.org looking at a module,
[atcroft]: and it referred to several other modules, but the links went to metacpan.org. I found that a bit of a surprise, and it got me wondering if there was a "standard" way to link to other modules in the documentation on CPAN.
