Because of this we almost always use objects when working with Tkx widgets. In line 5 and 6 we set up some window manager attributes of the main application window. John 11 24 It allows websites to execute Perl code on the local machine as the current user.

After the Tkx module has been loaded by the use Tkx statement, the application will show an empty window called “. Post as a guest Name. The same rules apply to the function names in the Tkx:: We need this constant because the menu layout on Aqua is not the same as in other windowing systems. The Tk toolkit is native to the Tcl programming language, but its turorial of use and cross-platform availability has made it the GUI toolkit of choice for many activveperl dynamic languages.


The application will still run, but when you try to invoke these menu entries you get an “Application Error Dialog” from Tk. Similar reasoning exists for the “bell”.

Email Required, but never shown. This function will return when the application window has been destroyed. In a real application there would be additional code between line 15 and 17 to set up the rest of the application window, but for this demonstration we’ll just leave the window empty.
