Feedback form Tclet demo

This page demonstrates the kind of stuff you can easily do, and also was used to let us know what you think of the Tcl plugin. You could enter your email address and name (not required, but we liked to know who you were) and comments, and then use the various sliders to describe yourself. When done, hitting the `Submit' button would make the Tclet send your comments to Sunscript via e-mail. That e-mail address might already be decommissioned, so don't put too much efforts filling that form, rather send you comments directly to the authors or on the newsgroup comp.lang.tcl.


# Guestbook.tcl --
#	A UI to let users of the Tcl plugin submit comments to us using
