Jon Cosby:
 |   I need some help with Tkinter, and find the Pythonware tutorial to be
 |   lacking. I'd like create a button to call an application and dialog
 |   window for input, and present the results. Are there some good
 |   examples to look at to get me started?

I've been learning it lately too.  Here are some Tkinter links I've saved
off that might be useful:

http://www.pythonware.com/library.htm                 (Prob. the one you read)

Links on Tcl/Tk are useful too.  Once you know what you want to do in
Tcl/Tk, but aren't sure how that translates into Tkinter, consult the Life
Preserver reference manual (link #4).

There are a number of examples in the Python distribution pkg under
Python-1.5.1/Demo/tkinter (see http://www.python.org/download/).  You might
run them and look for GUIs with pieces that look like they might be useful,
and then browse the source and extract the widget or two that you want.
