    Good general introduction to Perl/Tk is the book Learning Perl/Tk by Nancy Walsh. Good online demo is widget available from your command line if you have installed Tk module. Tk::JPEG includes some samples as well, it's basically just another image type though.

    There is also the GUI Programming section of Code Catacombs. Finally, there is a newsgroup which tracks the ptk mailing list.

    Beyond those things I'm not sure what you're looking for, could you elaborate?

    The perl/TK FAQ at is pretty useful for figuring out some of the more obscure options/widgets. The 'widget' demo program that ichipmunki mentioned, and which comes with the module (so you probably already have it) is also nice for finding code that does what you want. It also lets you view it's sample code from within the program and change it on the fly to see what your changes do.
    I hope this helps.

    perl -e 's;;uoli;;$a=length;y;g-w;e-u;;;$a--;s;j;$a;;print"$_\n";'

    And soon to be released (January 2002 to be exact), Mastering Perl/Tk, which is co-authored by Nancy Walsh, who wrote the original Learning Perl/Tk

    You could always look on the script section of CPAN to find other Tk projects that the community is sharing. I've found it more useful to look at someone's code and then try things than reading a book.

    I'm not trying to hawk O'Reilly (not that that's a bad or good thing), but if you're a member of Safari, Learning Perl/Tk is available online.

    Update: Corrected URL to Safari.

    If things get any worse, I'll have to ask you to stop helping me.

      oop! Safari is here. Thanks to sparkyichi for pointing this out.

    i've gotta say that i personally found the o'reilly leaning perl/tk book to be among the weakest from the publisher. i don't know if it was a problem with the editor or what, but i didn't feel that it was up to o'reilly standards.
