in reply to Russian input with Tk

I think you're pretty much out of luck until Tk 806 is released - the current version of Tk (804) doesn't support Unicode.

Look on CPAN for Prima. Prima is a full GUI toolkit, similar to Tk. Prima can do Unicode, though, so it should be perfect for you.

it says she can do math, but will she recognize 8 / 0?

We can only hope they've put in those safeguards.

Worst case scenario: She succeeds in dividing by zero, and suddenly little Tiphany-Amber's bedroom becomes the center of a howling vortex of nonspace, frying the neighborhood with sparkling discharges of zero-point energy.
