Hi monks ..
back with another query .. I'm trying to format the result of my application in a text format using Tk.. Its actually a summary report of time vs performance stats.I'm currently using Text::Table. I find it very easy to use. there is a limitation on the data entry though.. it is row-wise by default. I wanted to know if there is a way to enter the day column wise using Text::table... Sample code
use Text::Table; my $tb = Text::Table->new( "Planet", "Radius\nkm", "Density\ng/cm^3" ); $tb->load( [ "Mercury", 2360, 3.7 ], [ "Venus", 6110, 5.1 ], [ "Earth", 6378, 5.52 ], [ "Jupiter", 71030, 1.3 ], ); print $tb;
so in above case, i want to enter column 1 first then column 2 nd so on .
Also, the number of columns is variable . Please help

      Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
