Perhaps not the advice you want, but here's some food for thought.

The folks at ActiveState are promoting the rather nice Tkx module that has an API not horribly unlike that of the Tk module. Most of my Tk apps were rather easy to port over to Tkx, though the 'tkhp16c' program from the book Mastering Perl/Tk would be a bit of work because it bends the UI so much...

Disadvantage: The extra work of porting of course. Less than porting to most other systems, but still, not free.

Advantages: Leverages the much more modern version of Tk/Tcl that you do (or will) have installed on your system.
ActiveState, includes a stripped down version of Tk/Tcl in ActivePerl and PerlApp knows how to use it.
And best, best of all, Apple's version of Tcl does not seem to need X11 but plays directly with Darwin.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
