by "pure Tcl/Tk" demo I meant following (sorry for not being clear)
Perl is a scripting language, and Tcl/Tk is another scripting language.
Perl has Tk module (we're in its discussion list) and Tcl/Tk has very 
similar Tk GUI.
Tk was adopted to Perl many years ago, but initially Tk was connected to Tcl

Being two different languages, Tcl/Tk and Perl has interconnection modules

When something goes wrong in perl/Tk it is quite reasonable to check 
whether Tcl/Tk has same behaviour

Additionally, both Perl (w/ perl/Tk) and Tcl/Tk binaries are maintained 
by activestate.com (there may be others)

by  "pure Tcl/Tk" I meant for example 
It has similar to Perl's widgets demo, and you can try some widget 
behaviour from within it.

Also, running following code on Tcl/Tk interpreter:
pack [text .t]
will bring a Tcl/Tk GUI and widget on it for you to check behaviour

Isn't your OS is solaris? It could be actively supported by both 
scripting languages in question.
