NAME Tcl::Tk extension module for Perl5 DESCRIPTION The Tcl::Tk extension (not to be confused with the "native" perl5 Perl/Tk extension) provides a raw but complete interface to the whole of Tk via the Tcl extension. Tcl::Tk is pure-perl, with all binary bindings offloaded to Tcl perl module. Tcl::Tk has full support for perl/Tk syntax. This does not mean 100% compatibility though. perl/Tk syntax is taken, but it is not followed when it is not tcl/tk compatible. Do not expect full perl/tk compatibility, just use the same syntax. This approach allows you to intermix tcl/tk and perl/tk code, for example you can use pure-tcl to create entire GUI and then use perl/Tk syntax to access individual widgets. This also allows you to design GUI with any tcl/tk GUI designer. Build the module in the usual way for a perl extension: perl Makefile.PL make make test make install In some rare cases you may want to pass some parameters to Makefile.PL. You can see some explanations on these with perl Makefile.PL --help See License, Authors sections in Tcl/Tk.pm, or with 'perldoc Tcl::Tk' - once it is installed - to have acknowledged on this type of information.
