Whenever you want a refresh on a time period in Tk, you probably want a timer.
$mw->repeat(1000, \&status_bank); sub status_bank{ ......... do your extraction from file $mw->update; }
If you have alot of banks and entries, put them all in a hash, and loop thru them, like this pseudocode:
my %box_banamex; $box_banamex{$bank}{'entry'} = $upperframe->Entry(......... -textvariable => \$box_banamex{$bank}{'status'}, foreach my $bank (keys %box_banamex){ #read each value from file $box_banamex{$bank}{'status'} = whatever from file parsing; $box_banamex{$bank}{'entry'}->update; }

I'm not really a human, but I play one on earth. Cogito ergo sum a bum
