Perl/Tk Spreadsheet Editor

This is as far as I could approximate a Perl/Tk UI to Microsoft Excel. No, I don't want to create a clone of Microsoft Excel. But I was interested in how much one could lift the style of the plain old Tk. And I like the look and feel of Excel, so it was kind of inspiration for me.


Unfortunately, there is no way around the built-in border color of the Tk::TableMatrix used for the grid.

Searching the web, I read of people that coded their own spreadsheet using a Tk::Canvas and a lot of widgets. Unfortunately, none of these solutions is available anymore. And I don't want to code it again.

So, does anyone has such a piece of code and would it be possible to share it? I'm curious how it looks like and how it behaves in terms of performance.
