checkbuttons and radiobuttons do not layout their buttons efficiently, and the overal layout is limited to fit your (vertical) screensize. Planned fix is to use the grid(3) geometry manager, instead of pack(3) .
The additional Tcl/Tk options (on a #< line immediately following the #> line) are not working.
The code is horribly non-defensive, and does not handle syntax errors on the #> tag lines very well.

% tkrun designWould create a Tcl/Tk script called ‘‘design.tk’’, extract keyword info and run this script, which in turn will call ‘‘design’’ with your selection of ‘‘keyword=value’’ pairs.
% tkrun -r tsf itemize.cshparses the GUI elements from itemize.csh, and will call the tsf program.
Here is a very simple script, called testscript in the source code distribution:
#! /bin/csh -f # # here are some basic GUI elements # #> IFILE in= #> OFILE out= #> ENTRY eps=0.01 #> RADIO mode=gauss gauss,newton,leibniz #> CHECK options=mean,sigma sum,mean,sigma,skewness,kurtosis #> SCALE n=3.141592 0:10:0.01 #< -digits 2 #< # parse named arguments foreach a ($*) set $a end #> -EXEC echo If this is executed, tkrun does not work properly yet #> +EXEC echo ARGS: in=$in out=$out eps=$eps mode=$mode options=$options n=$n echo TESTSCRIPT echo 0 : $0 set count=0 again: if ($#argv == 0) exit 0 @ count++ echo $count : shift argv goto again
