It works.

Create the following perl program:

use Tk;

my $mw = MainWindow->new;

	-text => "Exit",
	-background => "red",
	-command => sub { exit; },
	)->pack( -side => 'bottom' , -fill => 'both' );	


Run it in, you get a nice exit button.

Uninstall the package libwmf.

Run it, it core dumps.

As I said in my original postings, I suspected it wasn't directly linked
in.  I honestly don't know precisely why or how, but I know that without
     this package, the simply script above doesn't work.

Please confirm on your system, should be trival, and add the dependency.

Please also bear in mind, that I only install what I need, the default
plus minimum, in this case, Perl/Tk. If this doesn't work on your
please try this approach.

Thank you,

Brett C. Serkez, Techie
