       Tk::LabFrame - labeled frame.

	   use Tk::LabFrame;

	   $f = $parent->LabFrame(?-label=>text, -labelside=>where, ...?);

       LabFrame is exactly like Frame and additionaly allows to add a label to the frame.

       LabFrame supports the same options as the Frame widget.

       Additional options of LabFrame are:

       -font => font
	   Specifies the label's font

       -foreground => color
	   Specifies the label's foreground color

       -label => text
	   The text of the label to be placed with the Frame.

       -labelside => where
	   Where can be one of left, right, top, bottom or acrosstop.  The first four work as
	   might be expected and place the label to the left, right, above or below the frame
	   respectively. The acrosstop creates a grooved frame around the central frame and puts
	   the label near the northwest corner such that it appears to "overwrite" the groove.

       -labelvariable => scalar_ref
	   Specifies a reference to a variable and used as an alternative to -label. If the value
	   of the variable changes, then the widget will be updated automatically to reflect the
	   change. Used like -textvariable.

       See "Subwidget" in Tk::mega how to use advertised widgets.

	     Frame used to display the border

	     Frame used to create new LabFrame children.

	     Label used for displaying text

       Run the following test program to see this in action:

	   use strict;
	   use Tk;
	   require Tk::LabFrame;
	   require Tk::LabEntry;

	   my $test = 'Test this';
	   my $mw = Tk::MainWindow->new;
	   my $f = $mw->LabFrame(-label => "This is a label",
				  -labelside => "acrosstop");
	   $f->LabEntry(-label => "Testing", -textvariable => \$test)->pack;

       Perhaps LabFrame should be subsumed within the generic pTk labeled widget mechanism.
