Perl Progressbar

Perl Progressbar

Perl Progressbar

Dear perl professionals,

  I have a problem in my perl code. I am trying to create progressbar which will be able to adapt its color according to specific decision i.e. if ($x<10)

assume progressbar is already created with @colors=(0,'green') and -colors = \@colors

I am trying to run this code but it doesn't work. I will be thankful for your help

RE: Perl Progressbar


Perl standard distribution alone is not able to create progress bars.
In case you used a Perl module, please specify which.

By the way, in case you use the Tk module, your code works for me. Of course, after correcting the elementary Perl syntax errors.


RE: Perl Progressbar

I am using tk::progressbar and there's no compilation errors but the color of progressbar is not changed.

Here's example
@colors = (0,'green');
$progress = $mw->ProgressBar(
-width => 20,
-length => 200,
-colors => \@colors,
-variable => \$progress,

if ($x<10)
