ozboomer's scratchpad

My weekly QuickQuestion(tm)... I'm going gaga on a simple Perl/Tk operation ( see my scratchpad ) When -width is specified, why is the text label contents always centred? - justify is documented to only work with multi-line contents. How can the contents of a fixed-width text label be left-justified?
use strict; use Tk; my $mw = MainWindow->new; my $lbl = $mw->Label( # File -text => '(start)', # -width => 12, -background => 'bisque', # -justify => 'left', -relief => 'groove', )->pack; my $btn = $mw->Button( -text => "Go!", -command => \&test, )->pack; MainLoop; sub test { $lbl->configure(-text => 'A'); }
