beretboy has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I'm trying to write a menu program that can be launched from the command line and take up the entire screen. Thus far I've been successful with the exception of two problems. The X cursor floats irritatingly in the center of the screen and the focus isn't on the window. This is for an arcade cabinet, so this Tk app needs to grab the focus immedieatly without user intervention. The X11 modules look promising, but I've been unable to figure out how to use them to solve the aforementioned problems. Thoughts?
