Tk_RegisterInterp - make an interpreter accessible with ``send'' command
Tk_RegisterInterp(interp, name, tkwin)
Tcl_Interp *interp (in) Interpreter to register in display
associated with tkwin. Also used to
return errors if registration failed.
char *name (in) Name under which to register interpreter.
Must be unique among all registered
interpreters for tkwin's display. May not
contain the character ``|''.
Tk_Window tkwin (in) Token for window. Used only to find a
display in which to register interp.
Tk_RegisterInterp is invoked to associate a name (name) with a Tcl
interpreter (interp) and record that association in a well-known property
of a particular display (the one containing tkwin). After this procedure
has been invoked, other interpreters in the display will be able to use
the send command to invoke operations remotely in interp. The procedure
returns TCL_OK if the registration completed successfully and TCL_ERROR
if the interpreter could not be registered (e.g. because name is already
in use). In the event of an error, interp->result is modified to point
to a message describing the error.
This procedure also adds a send command to interp, so that commands may
be sent from interp to other interpreters.
The registration persists until the interpreter is deleted or the send
command is deleted from interp, at which point interp is automatically
Tk_RegisterInterp is called automatically by Tk_CreateMainWindow, so
applications don't normally need to call it explicitly.
