widget: Demonstration of Perl/Tk widgets
widget - Demonstration of Perl/Tk widgets
widget [ directory ]
This script demonstrates the various widgets provided by Tk, along with
many of the features of the Tk toolkit. This file only contains code
to generate the main window for the application, which invokes
individual demonstrations. The code for the actual demonstrations is
contained in separate ".pl" files in the "widget_lib" directory, which
are autoloaded by this script as needed.
widget looks in the directory specified on the command line to load
user contributed demonstrations. If no directory name is specified
when widget is invoked and the environment variable WIDTRIB is defined
then demonstrations are loaded from the WIDTRIB directory. If WIDTRIB
is undefined then widget defaults to the released user contributed
