[931]1WHAT:   Enhanced Tk Console for all Tk platforms
2
3WHERE:  http://tkcon.sourceforge.net/
4        http://www.purl.org/net/hobbs/tcl/script/
5
6REQUIREMENTS: Tcl/Tk 8.0+
7        Tested through Tcl/Tk 8.4.
8        tkcon is all Tcl/Tk code, no compiling required
9
10tkcon is a replacement for the standard console that comes with Tk (on
11Windows/Mac, but also works on Unix).  tkcon provides many more features
12than the standard console and works on all platforms where Tcl/Tk is
13available.  It is meant primarily to aid one when working with the little
14details inside tcl and tk and to give Unix users the GUI console provided
15by default in the Mac and Windows Tk.
16
17FEATURES:
18    Command history
19    Path (Unix style) / Proc / Variable name expansion
20    Multiple consoles, each with its own state (via multiple interpreters)
21    Captures stdout and stderr to console window (puts overridden)
22    Hot errors (click on error result to see stack trace)
23    Electric character matching (a la emacs)
24    Electric proc highlighting
25    Enhanced history searching
26    Configurable
27    Cut / Copy / Paste between windows (interoperates with native platform)
28    Communication between consoles and other Tk interpreters
29        (including non-tcl ones)
30    Works on all Tk platforms

34GETTING STARTED:
35
36tkcon is a single drop-in file.  On Windows, I place this on the desktop
37and double-click on it instead of wish/tclsh.  On Unix, I place it in a
38directory on my path and run this instead of wish.  I don't have a Mac...

40Documentation can be reading by starting with index.html in the docs/
41subdirectory.  Happying Tcl'ing!
