tkaenc command is used to provide a GUI interface to aenc(1). Its use
should be self[hy]evident to anyone familiar with Aegis.
The top line of the screen contains button for selecting the project.
It will be defaulted using the usual Aegis defaulting rules.
Click on the buttons to obtain a pick list if you
want to change it; then double[hy]click an item to select it. (I would have
used tk_optionMenu, but it doesnt have a scroll bar, even when all the
items dont fit on the screen.)
The middle section contains text entry areas, for editing the
brief_description and description fields of the change
attributes. The text wraps in a natural way, both here and in (say)
the [lq]tkaenc -list change_details[rq] listing, so only use newlines
to indicate end[hy]of[hy]paragraph.
The lower section contains three boxes. The first is the testing required
for the change - select as many or as few as is appropriate. The second
a set of radio buttons to select the change cause - pick one.
The third box is whether to begin development immediately (it will
also run the aedb(1) command), or whether to leave the change in
The [lq]OK[rq] and [lq]Cancel[rq] buttons do what you expect. The cancel
button simply quits. The OK button runs the aenc(1) command -
if anything goes wrong (e.g. asking for testing exemptions you
cant have) then the error message will be displayed in the message area
at the bottom of the window.
The number of the change will be printed on a message on the standard
output, just as for a normal aenc(1) command.
