First Options of Chicago, Inc.
College of DuPage Bldg M Rm 147
An introduction to the Perl Tk module, used to build graphical
interfaces. The presentation is a line by line exposition of a simple
tool built in Perl/Tk. The commentary will explain the Perl code
used in the creation of this tool, both the general Perl functions and
the Tk objects and methods, briefly touching on Object Oriented Perl
(since the Tk module is OO).
