"I cant find any concise examples showing what must be in the module, and where the perl subroutines must go."

Run the "Perl/Tk Widget Demonstration". In case you don't know, that's just widget from the command line; I usually run it in the background to free up the console (i.e. widget &). Near the bottom, you'll find "Sample Perl Mega-Widgets".

Also see the Tk documentation. The "Derived Widgets" section would be a good place to start.

In addition to those published sources of information, you can look at source code on your own computer. You can find the location of the modules by querying %INC. Here's how you'd find itself:

$ perl -E 'use Tk; say $INC{""}'

For the mega-widget Tk::Balloon:

$ perl -E 'use Tk::Balloon; say $INC{"Tk/"}'

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.
