Nonny, sorry I was unclear.

You are right so far as I know (whether Gtk2 or Gtk3). I am just starting with Gtk3.

I would like to find an editable text entry widget, which can be passed a scalar ref at creation and can have the referenced value be changed by actions invoked by code outside the widget. Which is to say, outside changing when the user's cursor is in the widget need not be defined.

It occurs to me that I may be asking a lot of code that is wrapping C/C++.
