 Improving Tcl/Tk program with Perl/Tk?

Hi all,

I've got this Tcl/Tk program at work that works as a GUI to a
command-line scientific program. It's working just great but the
problem is that I have no experience with Tcl/Tk and, from my
one-month experience with Perl/Tk and a longer experience with Perl, I
would prefer to work with Perl/Tk. It is of course possible to start
again from scratch using Perl/Tk, but hopefully I won't have to do it.
The question is: What are my options in this situation? Is it possible
to take it as it is and improve on it using Perl/Tk?

I also have a technical question: I'm trying to write a subroutine
that creates an Entry widget, give it a label and assign the input to
a variable:

$entry = $parent->Entry(-textvariable=>\$variable)

Q: How do I pass a variable (not its value) as an argument to the
subroutine to be used for the -textvariable option?

Much thanks,
