(*Grumble, grumble* It's "alternative" or "extra", not "alternate". The latter means something like a seesaw. --KL) (Webster says that alternate means constituting an alternative (took the alternate route home. Besides, the seesaw definition fits - as one teeter totters back and forth between Tk and these additional extensions).

RLH : Those all seem to have something to do with Tk in one form or another. Gnocl does not. It is a binding for GTk+ and Gnome. It is awesome alternative to Tk and IMHO should be heartily embraced by the Tcl community.

WJG: Especially now that the core Gnocl widget set is available on Windows and MacOSx too!
