Want to make something that looks like a link in perl/tk

Last Modified: 2013-11-22
I have a perl app that use Tk as its interface.  It works well and I am very happy with it.  I would like to add one line to it which would be a link to a web site so that I can provide more info,

I would like to have a line of text that looks like a link, that is, it should be blue and underlined and when clicked should invoke a sub so that I can popup the web browser window required.  I know how to popup the web browser so all I am looking for is how to make Prt/Tk create a line that looks like a URL and that will invoke my sub

Please provide a short example
