in thread Tk....What exactly IS it?

I picked up the O'Reilly book "Learning Perl/Tk" out of a book bin at a local book store. It cost me all of $7.00. While I haven't actually used a GUI on any of my Perl projects, I've enjoyed going through the book and learning about Perl/Tk. I usually pull it out when I'm feeling like I need a change in perspective. It's just different enough from what I'm usually working on that it provides me with some amusement.

While I wouldn't recommend spending big bucks on a book about a technique you may never need, if you can pick up something inexpensive, it's worth the investment. For myself, if in the future I find I need a GUI for something, I'll be partly prepared to tackle that.

    Be careful with that book. If you got the one authored solely by Walsh, I've heard it's full of problems. You want to get the one authored by ( I believe ) Liddie and Walsh. But really the best way to go is to try to pick up a copy of the Perl CD Bookshelf with the Perl/Tk book on it. Much easier to carry around. Plus you get 6 other Perl books on a CD ROM. :)

    Useless trivia: In the 2004 Las Vegas phone book there are approximately 28 pages of ads for massage, but almost 200 for lawyers.
