NAME

Tk_Init, Tk_SafeInit − add Tk to an interpreter and make a new Tk application.

SYNOPSIS

#include <tk.h>

int
Tk_Init
(interp)

int
Tk_SafeInit
(interp)

ARGUMENTS

Interpreter in which to load Tk. Tk should not already be loaded in this interpreter.

DESCRIPTION

Tk_Init is the package initialization procedure for Tk. It is normally invoked by the Tcl_AppInit procedure for an application or by the load command. Tk_Init adds all of Tk’s commands to interp and creates a new Tk application, including its main window. If the initialization is successful Tk_Init returns TCL_OK; if there is an error it returns TCL_ERROR. Tk_Init also leaves a result or error message in interpreter interp’s result.

If there is a variable argv in interp, Tk_Init treats the contents of this variable as a list of options for the new Tk application. The options may have any of the forms documented for the wish application (in fact, wish uses Tk_Init to process its command-line arguments).

Tk_SafeInit is identical to Tk_Init except that it removes all Tk commands that are considered unsafe. Those commands and the reasons for their exclusion are:

bell

Continuous ringing of the bell is a nuisance.

clipboard

A malicious script could replace the contents of the clipboard with the string and lead to surprises when the contents of the clipboard are pasted.

grab

Grab can be used to block the user from using any other applications.

menu

Menus can be used to cover the entire screen and to steal input from the user.

selection

See clipboard.

send

Send can be used to cause unsafe interpreters to execute commands.

tk

The tk command recreates the send command, which is unsafe.

tkwait

Tkwait can block the containing process forever

toplevel

Toplevels can be used to cover the entire screen and to steal input from the user.

wm

If toplevels are ever allowed, wm can be used to remove decorations, move windows around, etc.
