Using Tk in wix XP

P: 1
Hello All,

I trying to write a simple perl script within win xp env.
The script which I wrote is just to create new object as written below:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. use Tk;
  2. $mw = new MainWindow;
  3. MainLoop;
Repeatedly I'm getting the following error:

bad option "windowingsystem": must be appname, or scaling at D:/Perl/lib/Tk/ line 42.

Can any one direct me what I'm doing wrong ?

Arepi is correct in his suggestion. You need to really follow the examples set forth in the CPAN page for TK. These pages are written by the authors and will help you get your syntax correct.

"new MainWindow" and "MainWindow->new()" should work the same. They are just different syntax but do the same thing.

The code posted works for me, but I never use Tk and I have no idea what that error message means.

It may be that you installed Tk incorrectly (not sure if it came with your installation).

That is possible although Tk does come with activeperl. The latest versions come with Tk and Tkx and I think perl 5.10 only comes with Tkx.
