Is there a link to sample code embedding Tcl/Tk in Freebasic program?

Not that I know of. Also I don't know of any FreeBASIC translations of the Tcl C header files, so you'd have to translate them into .bi files yourself, or at least translate enough of them to access the C api. This is what I tried to get across in my last message. Sounds like more work than its worth to me. If there were .bi files for Tcl/Tk, examples would be essentially identical to any C example.

Also it doesn't look like it's easy or practical to translate the Embedded Tk wrapper (ET) to FB (mentioned in one of your links). Seems to be firmly in the C world only (requires a special preprocessor to generate some C code).

I'm not sure you should really consider Tcl/Tk a choice for use in FB.

or briefly mention steps here. Thanks.

I presume this is in response to my post yesterday. If so, you identified the link yourself in your post yesterday with the viewtopic link.
