ActiveState also includes a "program" called PL2BAT that will transform your perl script into a batch file (so you can launch it directly w/o having to type perl ...).

So, use PL2BAT on your program: pl2bat

This creates yourTKscript.bat

Now edit the bat file and change the perl line to start wperl -x -S %0 %*

(This assumes you are using windows >= NT).

This will cause the batch file to launch your TK script using the wperl executable (no DOS window) AND it will NOT wait for it to return (your TK script to exit) before it returns you to the DOS command prompt.

Without the "start" on the front, your batch file would not return to the command line prompt until your TK script exited.

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
