[unmaintained] [TkSteal 4.0 corresponds to 7.6]

KJN does the -container option for Tk frames and toplevels now do everything that TkSteal can do?

 What: TkSteal
 Where: http://www.ignoranceisbliss.com/tksteal.htm

054. A draft paper titled "Kidnapping X Applications" is available as a part of the TkSteal tar file. It is authored by Sven Delmas and discusses the use of the TkSteal package to integrate existing X applications into a Tcl/Tk based program without having to make changes to the X application.

056. A WWW section for Hdrug , an environment to develop logic grammars for natural languages, is available at http://tyr.let.rug.nl/%7Evannoord/prolog-app/Hdrug/. It uses ProTcl and TkSteal.

 What: Expect
 Where: http://expect.nist.gov/
 Description: Expect is a scripting language to interace with programs
        such as FTP, telnet, fsck, and others that normally cannot be
        automated from a shell script.  Think of it as providing the means
        to 'remote control' other programs.  It is thus also good for
        automating program exection on remote systems, and providing the
        means to creating Tk interfaces on top of other, non-GUI, programs
        V5.x is Tcl 7.x compatible.  The version on
        liv, while not from the author, is a set of source modified to
        be used with tclX, BLT, and TkSteal.  V5.28 (the tar.gz version)
        is Tcl 8.0 compatible.  This package will also build expectk, which
        allows one to write Tk interfaces to the above types of programs.
        The version at berkeley is a release of Expect for Windows NT,
        which includes patches to Tcl to allow fileevent to work for pipes
        and serial ports.  It does not work for Windows 95.  Check its web
        page for info on the latest development snapshots.
        The url for a version of Expect 5.25/Tcl 7.6 for Japanese Tcl is
         mentioned above.
        The slavedrv code mentioned above is an attempt to port expect to
         recent versions of Windows.  It is only test code and provides ''NO''
         expect functionality.
        Version 5.31 of Expect, compatible with Tcl 8.2, is also available from
        the Sourceforge CVS repository.

[documented in book]

[where are old sources?]

BLT's "container" serves much (all?) of the function of TkSteal.
