Cross Platform Support in Tk

Ray Johnson and Scott Stanton

Sun Microsystems Laboratories


Tk currently supports a wide variety of X based platforms. In this paper we describe work in progress at Sun Microsystems Laboratories to make Tcl and Tk support non-X platforms. The changes described here will allow script writers to migrate Tk applications to Microsoft Windows and Apple Macintosh systems with little effort. In addition, scripts running on these systems will have the appropriate look and feel for each system.
