	Thanks to the bunch of you  who steered me toward python; it's 
	a really nice OO scripting language, and I'm picking it up 
	pretty rapidly.  Apppended is a "Tkinteri" [GUI] file that python
	doesn't like.  Any ideas why?  I did install this port.

	I'd like help getting python to read from a file and display a 
	steram of text on a textcanvas. I'll fiure out the buttons later.  
	I'd appreciate any insights about regular gtk and guile-gtk.  Or 
	whichever GUI libraries have the best python interface.

	thanks muchly,

 from Tkinter import *
 root = Tk()
 text = Text(root, height=26, width=50)
 scroll = Scrollbar(root, command=text.yview)
 text.tag_configure('bold_italics', font=('Verdana', 12, 'bold', 'italic'))
 text.tag_configure('big', font=('Verdana', 24, 'bold'))
 text.tag_configure('color', foreground='blue', font=('Tempus Sans ITC', 14))
 text.tag_configure('groove', relief=GROOVE, borderwidth=2)
 text.tag_bind('bite', '<1>', lambda e, t=text: t.insert(END, "Text"))
 scroll.pack(side=RIGHT, fill=Y)
