I've built and use Tk 800.024 (I haven't tried 804.027, the latest) that
uses X-windows. I've never tried the windows-specific version.
Here's what I did:
* From http://search.cpan.org/~ni-s/Tk-800.024/ download and unzip
* cygwin> perl Makefile.PL x
^ tells it to use X-windows
You could try 'perl Makefile.PL' if you want to try without (all this is
mentioned in the README.cygwin)
* cygwin> make
* cygwin> make install
Since I had an older version of perl, I also need to:
cygwin> cd /usr/X11R6/lib
cygwin> ln -s libX11.dll.a libX11.a
BEFORE I built TK. Gerrit P. Haase says that this issue has been fixed
with perl-5.8.5 for Cygwin (I haven't checked).
