13WHAT IS BWIDGET ?
14
15The BWidget Toolkit is a high-level Widgets Set for Tcl/Tk built using
16native Tcl/Tk 8.x namespaces.
17
18The BWidgets have a professional look&feel as in other well known Toolkits
19(Tix or Incr Widget) but the concept is radically different because everything is
20native so no platform compilation, no compiled extension library are needed.
21The code is 100% Pure Tcl/Tk.
