Visual separator in Perl Tkx

I have created a table in Perl/Tkx which looks about like this:

Geographic extent            
-----------------------------------
Xmin    Xmax    Ymin    Ymax
-------  --------  --------  -------
57.00   78.00    24.00   45.00

The text strings (i.e. "Geographic extent") are straightforwrd and can
be created via the label widget (new_ttk__label).  My problem is with
the dividers in my table.  I resorted to using dashes ("---") and the
label widget, but I was hoping for something more modern.  Is there a
simple way to draw a thin black line?  I tried the separator widget
(new_ttk__separator) but that draws a white line while I need a black
line.

Note that Perl/Tk is passe', my application is in Perl/Tkx.

I'm developing on a Mac, if that makes any difference.

My solution was to create a separator widget then place that widget in a frame with a 1-pixel border.  It looks quite nice.
