WISH Command Center 2009 is a simple Tcl/GTK+ program launcher,available for download from Pa Penguin's Icebox (http://www.pa-mcclamrock.com/papenguinspacks.html#wishcom). Program listings can be easily added, edited, sorted, or deleted. Requires Tcl (http://www.pa-mcclamrock.com/tcl-8.5.6-v1.pet) and Gnocl (http://www.pa-mcclamrock.com/gnocl-0.9.92.pet). Features include the following:

* Extended-mode listbox allows the user to select and launch several programs at once, or to delete several program listings at once, if desired.

* Auto-Add feature automatically detects numerous programs at start-up, and adds them to the selection list if (1) they weren't already on it and (2) they haven't been previously deleted from the list.

* Auto-Select feature allows the user to prepare a list of programs to be automatically selected when WISH Command Center opens up. The user can then run all of the pre-selected programs with a single click or keystroke (or not run them, if preferred).

* Friendly error message box appears if WISH Command Center can't find and run a selected program.

* "KILL" button can be used to bump off an unresponsive program with a single click on the program window.

Nice one.
It'g good to see that I'm not the only one still using tcl/tk Very Happy
On little issue, though (more an optical touch-up): the window seems to be pretty tall. Couldn't the image on the left be smaller to make the whole window smaller as well? Right now it looks MASSIVE - way too massive for what it actually does.

Certainly not! (Well, actually WISH Command Center 2009 is Tcl/GTK+ with Gnocl, but that still counts as far as I'm concerned.) NOTE: anyone interested in seeing who else uses Tcl, how to use it, what it's used for, and more, might start with the Tcler's Wiki (http://wiki.tcl.tk/0). Anyone interested in finding out why I picked Tcl, see here: http://www.pa-mcclamrock.com/icebox.html#Tcl/Tk.

Maybe, but the aim is to have a window that shows lots of program listings at once. What I do when I don't want to see the massive window is just to minimize it. Smile

Hehe, guess I'm a bit too freaky about wasting space. xD
My Tcl/Tk programs require little space without being cramped, but that requires lots of place commands (rather than pack), and this is why I still stick to tcl/tk instead of giving gnocl a serious try (afaik it doesn't provide place, which is bad because I dynamically manipulate the placement values to get the desired and desperately needed effects). Sad
