Tk::Zinc is nicely integrated into Tk, that's good. But I recall that when I tried Tk::Zinc in the past, I wasn't all that convinced. Things have not improved since then.

As of today, it doesn't install cleanly on my current machine (Debian Bullseye) from CPAN. I can force-install (i.e. skip tests), but then the zinc-demos application dies for all OpenGL related demos. The current CPAN testers report doesn't look promising as well. The URL mentioned in the manual has been grabbed by someone else. So, apparently it is a somewhat ... dry area.

I see that Tk::Zinc tries to make use of OpenGL: It calls OpenGL functions in its own C sources. However, there's no indication in the documentation nor in the demo sources that it offers using OpenGL interfaces through Perl.

So, unfortunately, the Tk::Zinc canvas is not what I want.
