in reply to Perl/Tk scrolling question...
Not that I've tried it — and my experience with Tk leads me to intuit that it won't work out as cleanly as it should — but it sounds to me like you want two scrollables, one inside the other. The outer scrollable would only scroll horizontally. The thing it contains (a Pane, I suppose) would contain a frame at the top, non-scrolling, and a scrollable below that which scrolls vertically.
