    Hmmm... several of my old links for this sort of info have gone bad. Here are some that are still good:

      the Perl/TK FAQ,
      this tutorial which is part of this larger repository of Perl/TK stuff.

    As jeffa mentions, there is the widget demo that comes with your TK installation. But there is also a copious collection (over 90 separate files) of other docs on various pieces of the TK collection of tools. These are all available with the Windows install as they are on Linux. On the windows box I have at hand at the moment ( with ActiveState Perl), those files are found as HTML in C:\Perl\html\site\lib\Tk and as pods in C:\Perl\site\lib\Tk. YMMV

    If you are using a *nix operating system, Tk provides a demo/tutorial called widget:
    shell_prompt% widget
    providing the install set up the bomb path properly, otherwise try to 'locate' it first, it is there. :)

    if you are willing to part with $ O'Rielly has a book 'Learning Perl/Tk' that seems to be pretty good. I am just strating it though

    What I did was understand Tk in Tcl's context, and then applied that to Perl. Once you understand what the Tcl/Tk man pages say, Perl/Tk's pages aren't so bad.
