in reply to Which Book is better?

Not a book, but this online resource is pretty good for learning Tk: http://www.tkdocs.com/tutorial/index.html. Every example is written in four programming languages: Tcl/TK, Ruby, Python and Perl.

Once you know the basics, original Tcl/Tk code can be pretty easily translated to perlTK. A lot of source code can be found here: http://wiki.tcl.tk/. Tcl, as it is, is not a complicated language, and it's easily read if you know Perl (although they're superficially similar).

Update:Of course there's a lot of perlTK code out there to learn from. My starting point for perlTK was Tcl/Tk.

[marto]: usemodperl "so to answer my question, no http at cpan," doesn't tie up with what you said "I can find cpan mirrors on http"
[usemodperl]: yea but http only has tar.gz, i wanna download modules with core perl, but http seems to make it impossible, that's my only question, how to find http mirrors like meta, or how to do it with core perl, but options now seem totally broken (on purpose :-(
marto wanders off
[usemodperl]: Corion it's really not misguided, it's the only way, to do something... wonderful IMHO
[Corion]: usemodperl: Why don't you set up your own (http-only) CPAN mirror? Or just fatpack your scripts? I wonder what problem you're trying to solve here.
[usemodperl]: don't worry about that, it's really cool, i promise!
[Corion]: usemodperl: Well, if the world changes and makes your "wonderful" approach not work anymore, you can either change your approach, or change the world. You seem to want to change others instead.
[usemodperl]: no dude i'm just asking how to access meta via http and you are getting defensive for some reason (did you turn off http at meta? :-)

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
