I'm using this...

The project is dead (no more updates for v2, there is an
incompatible v3), but the program is still useful, and I'm using

I'm using this as well.

Admittedly, for tcl-tclX and tk-Tix I'm barely scratching the

I'll need to take a closer look at this.

Looks like I've gotten work cut out for me if you upgrade tcl/tk
