"You can use this Linux Productivity Magazine issue as a Perl Tk tutorial. It's based on my speech timer, and as such gives you a solid Perl Tk foundation.

"Actually, my Perl Tk progress is well beyond what you'll read in this mag. I'm 90% complete in creating a generic picklist object, which was one of Clarion's main weapons in the war against lengthy development. In Perl Tk, Part 2, which comes out next month, you'll see this object and hopefully a picklist driven field, Clarion's other killer object. In Part 2 you'll also see examples of SQL linkage, and hopefully generic picklists, fields and forms that you can quickly code to interface with SQL.

"Of course, you and I both know that possession of these components doesn't guarantee fast development, at least for those not intimately familiar with the toolset. For that kind of casual speed, you need a development environment that helps build the generic parts of the app. Clarion used a template-driven interface--perhaps I'll try the same thing next month, or possibly the month after if this becomes a 3 month series..."
