perl/tk message boxes


I've written a perl script use Tk and I've got most everything working except for the message boxes. I can get them to come up and I can adjust the width of the actual box, but I can't adjust the width of the text. So my message box comes up and I've set it's with to be 75, so the box comes up quite wide, however the text in the middle only takes up a small portion of the available space before wrapping around. I've tried messing around with justify and aspect tags, but those simply change how the text looks in its small space. Does anyone know how to make the text in the popup message box use all of the space available? Thanks.
