perl.j has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I have been doing Perl programs for about a week now and I've been catching on very quickly (according to my family who already knows Perl).

They've been telling me that I should start SIMPLE Perl/Tk. There is just one problem.

I don't know how to use Tk. One of my biggest problems is when I tried to get Tk from PPM, the only thing that came up was Tkx. I got that but the Tk programs I wrote did not work.

I would greatly appreciate the help. I know I could research the problem but I find that PerlMonks gives me exactly what I need. Thanks in advance!
