I gather you're operating under Windows.

Yes and no.  I don't find the question coherent.  I think
you're asking for something like this:  you launch a Tkinter
application.  It has an associated console which prompts for
statements.  Now, you want to create a different application
which will send input to the console?

There's actually a technical possibility for achieving that--
but it's far more difficult than I think you intend.  What do
you *really* want?  Are you really just after a convenient
interprocess communication (IPC) method, and not entirely com-
mitted to seeing statements in an distribution console?
