Name

tkcon - Controlling TkCon console

Synopsis

Description

This provides lots of useful control over a console:

tkcon attach interpreter

Attaches tkcon to the named interpreter. The name must be that returned by [tk appname] or a valid path to a slave interpreter. It's best to use this via the Console->Attach Console menu.

tkcon buffer ?size?

Sets or queries the allowed size of the console text widget in lines. The text widget will automatically delete leading lines once this number has been exceeded (read: this is the scroll buffer size).

tkcon bgerror ?msg errorInfo?

Does bgerror stuff in the tkcon master interpreter.

tkcon close or tkcon destroy

Destroys this tkcon widget.

tkcon congets

Behaves like the traditional Tcl gets, but instead of using stdin, it uses the tkcon console window. By default, tkcon replaces the standard gets with this command. This behavior can be controlled by altering the ::tkcon::OPT(gets) parameter at startup. This should not be called directly - instead rely on the overloaded gets, which has support for the optional varName parameter.

tkcon console args

Passes the args to the tkcon text widget (the console).

tkcon error

Pops up a dialog that gives the user a full trace of the last error received in the tkcon console.

tkcon find string ?-case TCL_BOOLEAN -regexp TCL_BOOLEAN?

Highlights all instances of string in the console. If the string is empty, it clears any previous highlighting.

tkcon font ?fontname?

Sets or returns the font used by tkcon text widgets.

tkcon gets

Behaves like the traditional Tcl gets, but instead of needing stdin, it pops a dialog box up for the user. The overloaded gets has support for the optional varName parameter.

tkcon getcommand

A variation of the congets method that requires a full command to be input before returning.

tkcon hide

Withdraw the tkcon display from the screen (make sure you have a way to get it back).

tkcon history ?-newline?

Displays the tkcon history in sourceable form. If -newline is specified, it separates each command by an extra newline.

tkcon iconify

Iconifies the tkcon display.

tkcon linelength ?value?

Sets or displays the number that specifies the limit of long result lines. True result is still captured in $_ (and 'puts $_' works).

tkcon load filename

Sources named file into the slave interpreter. If no filename is given, it will attempt to call tk_getOpenFile to pop up the file select box.

tkcon main ?arg arg ...?

Passes the args to the main tkcon interpreter to be evaluated and returns the result.

tkcon master args

Passes the args to the master interpreter to be evaluated and returns the result.

tkcon new

Creates a new tkcon widget.

tkcon resultfilter ?command?

Specify a command to process the results before outputting it to the console window. The command receives one argument (the result string) and the string returned is placed in the console.

tkcon save ?filename ?type??

Saves the console buffer to the given filename. If no filename is given, it will attempt to call tk_getSaveFile to pop up the file select box. If no type is given, a dialog will ask you to specify what portion of the text you want to save.

tkcon set var ?value?

Queries or sets a master interpreter variable.

tkcon append var ?value?

Like set, but uses append on the variable.

tkcon lappend var ?value?

Like set, but uses lappend on the variable.

tkcon show or tkcon deiconify

Redisplays tkcon on the screen.

tkcon slave ?slavename ?arg arg ...??

If called with no args, it returns the name of all the tkcon interpreters. Otherwise given an interp name it passes the args to the named interpreter to be evaluated and returns the result. If no args are passed, then it returns the [tk appname] of that interpreter.

tkcon title ?title?

Sets or returns the title for tkcon.

tkcon version

Returns of version of tkcon.
