|<B>?B>, or <B>hB>||displays a short help summary.|
|<B>dB>, or <B>xB> ?args, ...?||Dumps recursively arguments to stdout. (see Data::Dumper). You must have <Data::Dumper> installed to support this feature.|
|<B>pB> ?arg, ...?||appends |\n to each of its arguments and prints it. If value is <B>undefB>, (undef) is printed to stdout.|
|<B>oB> $widget ?-option ...?||prints the option(s) of $widget one on each line. If no options are given all options of the widget are listed. See Tk::options for more details on the format and contents of the returned list.|
|<B>oB> $widget <B>/B>regexp<B>/B>||Lists options of $widget matching the regular expression regexp.|
If no argument is given it lists the modules loaded
by the commands you executed or since the last time you
If argument is the empty string lists all modules that are loaded by ptksh.
If argument is a string, text it tries to do a use Tk::Text;.
Ptksh compiles into package Tk::ptksh. Your code is evaled into package main. The coolness of this is that your eval code should not interfere with ptksh itself.
ptksh will accept multiline commands. Simply put a \ character immediately before the newline, and ptksh will continue your command onto the next line.
If you have a perl/Tk script that you want to do debugging on, try running the command
ptksh> do myscript; -- or (at shell command prompt) -- % ptksh myscript
Then use the perl/Tk commands to try out different operations on your script.
Looks for your .ptksh_history in the directory specified by the $HOME environment variable ($HOMEPATH on Win32 systems).
.ptksh_init If found in current directory it is read in an evaluated after the mainwindow $mw is created. .ptksh_init can contain any valid perl code. ~/.ptksh_history Contains the last 50 lines entered in ptksh session(s).
It is best not to use my in the commands you type into ptksh. For example my $v will make $v local just to the command or commands entered until <Return> is pressed. For a related reason, there are no file-scopy my variables in the ptksh code itself (else the user might trounce on them by accident).
<B>Tk::MainLoopB> function interactively entered or sourced in a init or script file will block ptksh.
