Attached is a perlbug bug report on the incorrect display of Hebrew in perl/Tk. I've also included a very simple perl/Tk script that replicates the problem and provides a .ppm image of the exact same text displaying correctly in the leafpad editor. I've done some programming, and if you can point me in the right direction, I'd be happy to help track this down. Also, I am more than willing to recompile perl/Tk and test any fixes you may have. Shalom, El'ad/Dale Edmons

I fear that there's not much what can be done here. The current Perl/Tk is derived from a quite ancient version of Tcl/Tk, but even with current Tcl/Tk 8.6 it seems that there's no real bidi support (see attached tcl script, with wish8.6 I see the same result as with Perl/Tk 804.031).
