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

Hello monks

It is known that ActiveState Perl 5.16 doesn't have direct support for TK. Before I downgrade my installation or change to another distribution, I'd like to know if somebody has been able to run scripts with TK with the ActiveState Perl 5.16 distribution. I have read here where it is stated that it was possible to have TK installed on 5.14. The same seems not to apply for 5.16. Any suggestions? Switching to TKX is not an option, as all my codes use TK...

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

    Yes. The latest Tk from cpan built (noisily) and tested (mostly) successfully and installed for AS 5.16.1 (64-bit) (using MSVC).

    With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'

    I've just used the GUI PPM to install Tk 804.029 from Bribes. Under Edit|Preferences 'Add' an entry for Bribes with the URL

      Bribes is back ?
      That's great news - it was missing for quite a while and I was starting to think that it might be gone permanently.

      There is also, that's what I needed for my Windows 7 64-bit version. The other was showing 0 packages available. :-)

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
