Go ahead, and I'll help with it.  I just stalled on it for a few months
because I wasn't sure if the interest was really there.

BTW, I forgot to mention, when you get the archive, to install:

cd /usr/local
tar xvf edulp.tar

It expects to install under /usr/local, and won't work otherwise!

Do you have the O'Reilly Perl books?  Advanced Perl Programming is great
and covers some Perl/Tk.  But you need to know the basics first.
