Tk always on top

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

I work with PERL on Win32 (-_-). I made this silly little application that tells me the weather and I want to make Tk do a couple of things. First thing I want to do is remove the standard windows border. Kind of like you would do for a splash screen. That way I could make it smaller. The other thing I want to do it make it always appear on top of the other windows in the desktop. I know some applications (such as winamp) can do this, I am wondering how to do this in Tk. Is it even possible? Please let me know?

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

      Thanks! That helped with the always on top part! But is there a way to change the frame from a standard windows frame to an unmanaged frame so that I can make my own frame?
