tamaguchi has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I have a -tk GUI with various settings. After the settings have been set the user can start the "mainprocess" with the startbutton. The "mainprocess" however is processor-power and timeconsuming. So during the run of the "mainprocess" the gui freezes and doesnt update. It looks very bad. Do you know of any tricks to use to avoid this, or do I have to use threading, (which I know nothing about in perl)?
Thank you for any help or suggestions.
