in thread How can I install Tk perl module in 32-bit operating system and Windows7 ?

... functionally similar ...

Its functionally superior but the namespace/syntax changes/inconsistencies/kludges will drive you mad

I've written many hundreds small less than 100 lines Tk programs, and about 10-20 Tkx ones ... Tkx hurts so much its not funny

In theory it sounds great, but whatever edge Tk.pm gives you in terms of perlishness/memorability/quickness Tkx just rips it out with the inconsistency

Tcl::pTk makes it bearable but needs more than Tcl::tkkit

I stick with Tk

If I absolutely must have the new Tcl/Tk widgets (which is never) I'll go for Tcl::pTk, but otherwise stick with Tk.pm

Tkx -- never again voluntarily (only for massive cash)

    I agree that Tkx produces a mess-code, even more of a mess - compared to perl/Tk.

    To avoid this mess - I code GUI entirely in TCL and connect it to perl - with having perl/tk syntax with Tcl::Tk - for me this is an ideal balance.

    I code this way 10+ years already and just happy :):)
