Homepage     : http://akinimod.sourceforge.net
FTP site     : http://akinimod.sourceforge.net/ptk_1_0.tar.gz
Version      : 1.0
Date         : 19/06/02
Category     : Graphics
Supported OS : Linux
Description  :
PTK provides a method to create gui's for FreePascal programs using the TCL/TK gui kit. The new release can in fact embed ANY interpreted language (E.G. Perl/Python) inside you pascal code. This feature is largely untested though and should be considdered Alpha code. Using it for TK is working just fine however. I have even used it with TK code generated by TKBuilder. 
Keep in mind that this is not just a wrapper unit, but a completely new way to embed code inside a Pascal program. It is more similiar to CGI coding than traditional gui coding in fact. It requires the Linux unit.
