There arent any Perl bindings for VTK yet.  I dont know why.  I wont
venture on speculations for fear of starting a language war here. :)

Python and Tcl sure do a great job!  My personal favourite is Python
and you can use Python and VTK with either Tkinter, or
wxWindows/wxPython or with pyGtk.  There are a lot of Python examples
for VTK too.
