Perl/Tk for Mac?

I think you misunderstand what I'm trying to do.  I know I can run 
the PERL script itself on all the platforms, including Macintosh (via 
MacPerl).  The problem is that command-line things are generally 
too complex and/or too difficult to remember.  I need to put a GUI 
front end on the script.  Perl/Tk would be perfect for that.  I can do 
it easily enough on Windows and UNIX.  Mac is apparently without 
a Perl/Tk port.  

Embedding this in a Mac-only editor wouldn't be of much use.  We 
have access to a Mac UI library, and to a Win32 UI library.  There 
are lots of X-based UNIX UI libraries, too.  I would like to have this 
thing be able to run anywhere, though.  

Hmmmmm...  I just realized out how to achieve platform neutrality, 
sans Tk.  It's obvious -- turn the script into a CGI!

That might just do the trick, in the short run...
