WHAT IS THIS?
World Wide Web (WWW) is a hypertext project which seeks to build a
world wide network of hypertext links. There are several different
browsers for this system including a simple tty interface. For a
demo of the terminal browsers for WWW, telnet to the following sites:
telnet info.cern.ch or telnet 188.8.131.52 (SWISS)
telnet eies2.njit.edu or telnet 184.108.40.206 (USA [NJ])
telnet vms.huji.ac.il or telnet 220.127.116.11 (ISRAEL)
telnet info.funet.fi or telnet 18.104.22.168 (FINLAND)
and login as "www"
Tk is an interpreted toolkit which allows one to build X11 applications
quickly and easily.
tkWWW is a Tk interface to (WWW), which lets you send embedded buttons,
scrollbars, etc in hypertext written for WWW.
The Tk browser has the following advantages.
1. Since the entire user interface is written in an interpreted
language, it should be very easy to make modifications and extensions
to the system.
2. tkWWW can be configured with the "htext" widget which makes it is
possible to imbed Tk code into hypertext or with the "text" widget
which makes it possible to display multi-fonts. In the next few
months, there will be a new revision of tK which will allow imbeded
tK code with the "text" widget and support for the tkWWW "htext" widget
will be discontinued.
