I've never heard of anyone trying to use perl with eCos. At present, I
believe that there might be licensing issues with this anyway. It's not
clear (without some reflection) if the perl artistic license is
compatible with the RHEPL.
As for Tk - forget it. At least on eCos. Tk requires X windows (AFAIK)
which would never be suitable for eCos. Other toolkits might be
possible. Certainly we have already shown that microwindows (with
nano-X) can run well on eCos.
