Displaying an xterm inside a Tk window
Posted by neo (The Architect), 8 October 2005I was wondering if this is possible?
Can I execute and display an xterm inside my Wish shell?
if so how?
Posted by admin (Graham Ellis), 9 October 2005It depends exactly what you mean.
You can launch an Xterm from within a wish application using exec - there's a long example of this in "Exploring Expect" called xkibitz (use that name if you want to search for it!). With this application (and any adaption you write using its techniques, wish pops up xterms through which you interact.
There isn't (as far as I know) a widget that emulates an Xterm - that would require someone to have coded the extra escape sequences, etc, and I haven't come across it ... a quick search didn't bring one up either.
So - running an Expect application within an Xterm, or one that pops up an xterm as a separate window is fine. But running an Expect application that brings up an Xterm as one of the components within a frame isn't a standard thing at all.
