This document is for those users who are trying to use TkCon with a
non-Tcl based Tk language (ie - SchemeTk, PerlTk, PythonTk...).
TkCon requires Tcl/Tk 8.0+ to
run. However, it can attach to any language with Tk4+
embedded into it with the use of the Tk 'send' command. I have been able
to succesfully talk to SchemeTk-3.0 and Perl/Tk. When using TkCon attached
to these interpreters, you must remember to talk to the connected
interpreter in its language.
I welcome further comments from users of Tk-embedded languages on their
experiences or ideas. Of course, you can always try to port TkCon in full
to your language. I'd like to see the results from any such efforts.
Special Language Notes:
