( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I don't know much about Tk ( seems to be more than the average programmer though :-), here is a mighty ugly demo program which will get you on the way. Forking should work...although it doesn't on my windows computer...

use Tk; $SIG{ CHLD } = sub{ wait }; my $top = new MainWindow; $top->Label(-text => 'Welcome to My Mail Program')->pack; $top->Button(-text => 'Start', -command => \&myStartRoutine )->pack; $top->Button(-text => 'Stop', -command => sub{ kill($pid); exit; } )->pack; $top->Label(-text => 'Enter server name')->pack; my $servname = $top->Entry(-width => 10); $servname->pack; $top->Button(-text => 'Configure', -command => sub{ print "The server name is: ",$s +ervname->get() ,"\n"} )->pack; MainLoop; sub myStartRoutine { if( !($pid = fork) ) # child has the main loop looping for ever { while( 1 ) { print "program started\n"; sleep( 1 ); } } }
Hope this helps!

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
