Re: perl question

Well this has nothing to do with VMS, or VMS perl specific, You probably get more answers in a perl forum ...
but maybe Mr. Perl will answer later today :-)

Re: perl question

I don't know what Mr. Perl thinks, but I think you need to specify the question a bit more fully. What is a "text area"? What is the $tx object and what is its insert method documented to do (beyond the obvious)?

A wild guess would be to call the insert method once for each line of output you want rather than once overall.

Re: perl question

depends on what type of widget $x is

if $x is a ListBox widget,

$x->insert ("end", @res1, @res2);

would do what you require. If $x is a Text or ROText widget, you might want

$x->insert ("1.0", join "\n", @res1, @res2);
