KevinWalzer: PyLocateTile is a simple GUI wrapper for the Unix "locate" command. I wrote it to illustrate how TileWrapper and TableListTileWrapper can be used in a Tkinter application. To use this, you need TileWrapper and TableListTileWrapper installed. You also must have Tile and TableList installed with Tcl/Tk.

""" The purpose of this application is to illustrate how to integrate some recent advances in Tk development into a Tkinter application. My focus here is the Tablelist widget, developed by Csaba Nemethi and initially wrapped for Tkinter by Martin Franklin, with additional modifications by Kevin Walzer; and , in the pylocate-tile version, the Tile widget set, developed by Joe English and others, initially wrapped for Tkinter by Martin Franklin, and additionally modified by Kevin Walzer. To run pylocate or pylocate-tile, you will need TableList.py and/or Tile.py and Tablelist_Tile.py installed in your Python site-packages directory; and Tablelist and/or Tile themselves will have to be installed somewhere on your Tcl/Tk auto_path. Tablelist is a pure-Tcl package, while Tile is a binary extension that must be built from source. Both can be found for numerous platforms in the ActiveTcl distribution. Additionally, because pylocate wraps the Unix "locate" command-line program with a GUI, you will need to have locate installed on your system. This program is a standard part of most Linux and Unix systems, including Mac OS X, and Windows ports are also available for separate download on the Internet. This application is coded without classes. Coming from a Tcl background, I am more comfortable with a procedural approach, and some of the way this application is structured (using global variables extensively) may not be totally "Pythonic." Still, the example should serve well enough for most purposes. --Kevin Walzer, 2006 """ import Tkinter from tkMessageBox import * import Tile import os import sys from TableList_Tile import * searchterm = "" table = "" root = "" log = "" textimage = "" def pylocate(): """ The pylocate function takes a search term and passes that term on to the standard Unix "locate" command via an os.popen call.The system call returns a list of files that match the search term, as defined in the "locate" database.
