42<I>This document is for those users who are trying to use TkCon with a
43non-Tcl based Tk language (ie - SchemeTk, PerlTk, PythonTk...).</I>
44 <P>
45
46TkCon requires <A HREF="http://tcl.activestate.com/">Tcl/Tk 8.0+</A> to
47run.  However, it can attach to any language with Tk4+
48embedded into it with the use of the Tk 'send' command.  I have been able
49to succesfully talk to SchemeTk-3.0 and Perl/Tk.  When using TkCon attached
50to these interpreters, you must remember to talk to the connected
51interpreter in its language.
52 <P>
53I welcome further comments from users of Tk-embedded languages on their
54experiences or ideas.  Of course, you can always try to port TkCon in full
55to your language.  I'd like to see the results from any such efforts.
56 <P>

62Read the man page on Perl/Tk's send command.  You have to define Tk::Receive
63before it will work.
