Very nice. I havn't thoroughly tested it, but it loads fast and works smooth. The only error on linux I see, is "Tk::Error: "h:\" is not a valid directory", when I try to open a file. You might want to post this so the mainstream perlTk crowd can look at ( and enjoy) it.

    I've /msg'ed the author about that also. The script has 'h:\' as initial dir, which seems silly for *NIX machines and even for most Win32 machines that have no h:\ 'share' mounted.


    All code is usually tested, but rarely trusted.
      Oops, you are right. I was doubly shortsighted here. A case of Windows-blindness?

      I fixed this by simply removing the -initaldir option from getOpenFile() call. On my machine now the File Open dialog seems to default to the directory most recently used by the script.

      Does the File Open dialog now do something reasonable on *NIX machines?
