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

The C documents for GTK3 indicate that a EntryBuffer's text value needs to be altered by appropriate GTK3 functions. Does this apply in Perl?

I feel like I am missing something.

I am looking for a widget that allows something like:

my $sv = "Some value"; my $gtktextentryish = Gtk3::somewidget->new( \$sv); # map gui stuff, etc. $window->show_all(); $sv = "Another scalar value!";
And now $gtktextentryish is unfazed that its data value has changed underneath it.
