- How the current version started
As can be seen in my presentation APWTCL
at the 10th European Tcl/Tk Users Meeting 2012
based on Jim
Tcl. This version was the first version wtk
from Mark Roseman
as an interface for handling basic widget support. Following that APWTCL
for supporting Android
smartphones and an implementation in Objective-C for support of iPhone
When arriving at the point for building support for wtk
widgets the first approach was to use the administrative part of wtk
code to the displaying part by a generic message (string based) interface.
On the client side there should be a small interpreter for decoding the messages and for switching and dispatching to the appropriate functions for doing the displaying and event handling work.
This was first implemented for the iOS
version, later on there was a port of that code to Java to support Android
