( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

G'day bliako,

++ Thanks for taking the trouble to dig out that old (2004) post.

The text regarding rotations from zentara (which you've quoted) actually refers to Tk::Zinc; rotations are not possible with Tk::Canvas. From "Tk::Canvas - TRANSFORMATIONS":

... Canvases do not support scaling or rotation of the canvas coordinate system relative to the window coordinate system.

Individual items may be moved or scaled using methods described below, but they may not be rotated.

The thinking behind your guess is valid; unfortunately, it cannot work.

That's a pity because it would have been useful. For instance, rotating the bend through 90 clockwise, could have made the creek flow north, instead of south, without the need to code a separate group. Presumably, had that been possible, the [0, 0] would have needed to be [50, 50] to rotate about the centre.

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.
