keyboard, pen - character input for touch screen devices


wm/keyboard [ -e ] [ -t ]

wm/pen [ -e ] [ -r ] [ -t ]


Wm/keyboard provides a soft keyboard for touch-screen devices. Characters selected on the on-screen keyboard using a stylus (or mouse button 1) are passed to Tk via Tk->keyboard in tk(2). The -t option causes it to put itself on the wm(1) task bar from the start. The -e option causes it to treat the `exit' button on the title bar as a request to put itself back on the task bar.

Wm/pen provides character input using single-stroke gestures with the stylus (or mouse button 1). The -r option allows the pen window to be reshaped. Options are otherwise the same as for wm/keyboard.
