I've recently 'dived into Tkinter' and found the Programming Python
book *very* helpful.
There is a fair bit to learn before you can start doing useful stuff -
but once you've got your head round the basics it's not too difficult.
If you want a simple program with a Tkinter GUI to use as examples
a) my Nanagram program ;-)
b) sourceforge has a couple of very simple text editors that use
Tkinter and demonstrate a very simple Tkitner framework.
