Examples

TCL_EvalStr("toplevel .tst1");

// creates a toplevel TK window. 
TCL_EvalStr("entry .tst1.e -textvariable tvar");

// create an editable entry
TCL_EvalStr("set tvar foobar");

// set the entry value
TCL_EvalStr("pack .tst1.e");

// pack the entry widget. It appears on the screen.
text=TCL_GetVar("tvar")

// retrieve the variable value
// change the entry text and repeat the last command ...
//delete the toplevel TK window.
TCL_EvalStr("destroy .tst1")
