Thank you very much for your quick reply, yes the book i have is
Mastering Perl/Tk, I need some form of guide and heads-on, I am not
sure how to put the codes together to give me what I need, for
instance, I am not sure how to get the database to display in the form
of rows and column in a widget as it is not discussed in the book.
Please can you help in this regard.
