Hi..
i would like to know how can i print the output generate by the sub-condition onto the
text area of the perl tk gui.

This is how i create my text area using perl tk:

#Create Scrollbar widget and setting it's entity
 
$xscroll = $frame7->Scrollbar(-orient => 'horizontal');
$yscroll = $frame7->Scrollbar(-orient => 'vertical');

# Create text widget($text)and setting it to uneditable & other entity  
my $text = $frame7->ROText('-width'=>70,'-height'=>20,
-xscrollcommand => ['set', $xscroll],
-yscrollcommand => ['set', $yscroll]);
$xscroll->configure(-command => ['xview', $text]);
$yscroll->configure(-command => ['yview', $text]);
$xscroll->pack(-side => 'bottom', -fill => 'x');
$yscroll->pack(-side => 'right', -fill => 'y');
$text->pack(-side=>'top', -fill => 'both', -expand => 1);

This is the sub-condition i use to crunch data and save the crunched data into text files.
sub condition1()
{

#Get entry
      $mac=$f->get('active');
        $dev=$d->get('active');
        $datef=$entry2->get;
        $datet=$entry3->get;
      $file=$entry->get;

#connect to the database
my $dbh = DBI->connect('dbi:mysql:rvsi','','', {RaiseError=>1, PrintError=>1});

# Extract the data from database
my $d = $dbh->selectall_arrayref("select qin, qout, yield, reject FROM yield WHERE date BETWEEN '$datef' AND '$datet'");
    print ("Daily Yield Report Summary for '$dev' between '$datef' to '$datet'\n\n");
    print ("Qin\t", "Qout\t", "Yield\t", "Reject\n");

# Print out all the array catch  
foreach my $r(@$d) {
    print join("\t", @$r), $/;
}

#print the dotted line
print "-"x60, $/;

#Do the calculation
my $t = $dbh->selectrow_arrayref("select sum(qin), sum(qout), ((sum(qout)/sum(qin))*100), sum(reject) FROM yield WHERE date BETWEEN '$datef' AND '$datet'");
print join("\t", @$t), $/;

die "$file already exists\n" if -f $file;
open FILE, ">$file" or die "Can not create $file $!\n";

#print the sums at the top of the file, separated by tabs
print FILE "Daily Yield Report Summary\n";
print FILE "Device: '$dev'\n";
print FILE "Date: '$datef' to '$datet'\n\n";
print FILE "Qin\t", "Qout\t", "Yield\t", "Reject\n";
foreach my $r(@$d) {
print FILE join("\t", @$r), $/;}

#write the other arrays in tab-separated columns underneath the sums
 print FILE  "-"x60, $/;
 print FILE join("\t", @$t), $/;

close(FILE);
}

replace:
print join("\t", @$r), $/;

with:
$text ->insert("end",  "$r\n");

You can do your own formatting as far as the \t (tab) goes. Maybe something like " $r .= "\t"; before the insert() function.

For future reference you can check out a text editor I wrote in perl/Tk at the following link: http://www.perlskripts.com/cgi-bin/showscript.cgi?pEdit=1

I coded a ton of Tk functions and commented pretty well so you may be able to find what you are looking for in this code. If you want to download this app and use it visit the site directly (www.perlskripts.com) and navigate to the scripts ection. There are some support file you will need to grab in order to make this program complete. The first link I gave is strictly for the source code.
