NAME
       Tk_Main - main program for Tk-based applications

SYNOPSIS
       #include <tk.h>

       Tk_Main(argc, argv, appInitProc)

ARGUMENTS
       int argc (in)				  Number of elements in argv.

       char *argv[] (in)			  Array  of strings containing command-line argu-
						  ments.

       Tcl_AppInitProc *appInitProc (in)	  Address of an application-specific  initializa-
						  tion procedure.  The value for this argument is
						  usually Tcl_AppInit.

DESCRIPTION
       Tk_Main acts as the main program for most Tk-based applications.  Starting with Tk 4.0  it
       is not called main anymore because it is part of the Tk library and having a function main
       in a library (particularly a shared library) causes problems on many systems.  Having main
       in  the	Tk  library would also make it hard to use Tk in C++ programs, since C++ programs
       must have special C++ main functions.

       Normally each application contains a small main function  that  does  nothing  but  invoke
       Tk_Main.  Tk_Main then does all the work of creating and running a wish-like application.

       When  it is has finished its own initialization, but before it processes commands, Tk_Main
       calls the procedure given by the appInitProc argument.  This procedure provides	a  "hook"
       for  the  application to perform its own initialization, such as defining application-spe-
       cific commands.	The procedure must have an interface that matches the  type  Tcl_AppInit-
       Proc:
	      typedef int Tcl_AppInitProc(Tcl_Interp *interp);
       AppInitProc is almost always a pointer to Tcl_AppInit; for more details on this procedure,
       see the documentation for Tcl_AppInit.
