Subclassing Zinc might be a viable option for me - I will look into this. When I understand bless()

Look at Tk::CanvasDirTree where I subclass the Tk::Canvas. You could easily substitute Zinc in that, with minor syntax changes for things like finding the root group and scrollbar control, etc.

You might want to post a new node asking about modules for handling complex interactions, I'm sure I've seen it discussed here before.

    Oh great! From browsing it quickly (at work;) it seems to contain quite a few useful pointers. OTOH I am also considering the Zinc C API to do the dirty work - obviously faster, and possibly easier to maintain in the long run.

    I guess I'll post a node when I have some more specific questions on this subject.

    Thanks again :-)
