Using DoOneEvent() with DONT_WAIT inside your get() sub allows the window to be built and updated in real time. (I've simulated your module with a random sleep)

use strict; #use mship; use Tk qw[ MainLoop DoOneEvent DONT_WAIT ]; my $host; $|++; my $mainwindow = new Tk::MainWindow(); my $text = $mainwindow->Scrolled( "Text", -scrollbars => 'se' )->pack( -expand => 1 , -fill => 'both' ); for ( 0 .. 53 ) { DoOneEvent( DONT_WAIT ) for 1 .. 100; ## process pending events; get($_); } # create a closebutton my $button = $mainwindow->Button( -text => "close", -command => sub{ $mainwindow->destroy() } )->pack(); # start the main loop! MainLoop; sub get { sleep rand 3; my $remote_name = "remote: $_[ 0 ]"; my $stats= rand() > 0.5 ? "Up" : "Down"; $text->insert( 'end', "$remote_name is $stats\n"); }

My choice of  for 1 .. 100; is somewhat arbitrary. It would be nice if you could say DoPendingEvents() or DoOneEvent() while EventsPending();, but I never found anything like that.

Update: Wadda ya know--seems DoPendingEvents() is called update():

use strict; #use mship; use Tk; my $host; $|++; my $mainwindow = new Tk::MainWindow(); my $text = $mainwindow->Scrolled( "Text", -scrollbars => 'se' )->pack( -expand => 1 , -fill => 'both' ); for ( 0 .. 53 ) { $mainwindow->update; get($_); } my $button = $mainwindow->Button( -text => "close", -command => sub{ $mainwindow->destroy() } )->pack(); MainLoop; sub get { sleep rand 3; my $remote_name = "remote: $_[ 0 ]"; my $stats= rand() > 0.5 ? "Up" : "Down"; $text->insert( 'end', "$remote_name is $stats\n"); }

Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.

The "good enough" maybe good enough for the now, and perfection maybe unobtainable, but that should not preclude us from striving for perfection, when time, circumstance or desire allow.

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:

  • 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).
