No stupid error from you here... That's only that I have forgot to delete the
inspect/view/detail references from the 3.0 documentation. These functions
were written (not by me) before the 1.0 of STk and I have tried to maintain
them u
ntil now. With STk3.0 which is based on Tk 4.0 a lot of incompatibilies have
d and the adaptation of these function has not been done.
However, I feel that all the stuff should be rewritten now rather than ported
to Tk4.0. In the meanwhile you can probably have a look at EnvDraw which
does a pretty job for exhibiting data and environments.
You can find it in the /pub/Contrib directory on
