A set of bindings that allow you to use the Tk widget toolkit from Tcl/Tk with the REXX programming/scripting language, effectively giving you a rudimentary multi-platform GUI toolkit. Originally developed for Windows 95 and later ported to UNIX-like operating systems and OS/2, is easily portable to other systems that have a REXX interpreter and a Tcl/Tk port.

Received quite a lot of development from version 1 to 1.2 from the original developer Roger O'Connor but after he passed away development slowed down and work on it was abandoned in favour of REXX/DW that has more robust GUI capabilities. However the REXX/Tk bindings are perfectly usable as is.
