Accelerators are easy. Example: filemenu.add_command(
label="Close", command=self.doClose, accelerator="Command-W")
The rest is a nightmare. I've posted a partial solution in
comp.lang.python, thanks to some help from John Grayson, under the
topic "Tkinter question: cut, copy and paste?". Tkinter is so nice in
so many ways, but it's handling of the basic editing operations
leaves a *lot* to be desired. Perhaps this is not news to anybody
else, but it was a shock to me.
