       term::ansi::code::macros - Macro sequences


       package require Tcl  8.4

       package require textutil::repeat

       package require textutil::tabify

       package require term::ansi::code::macros  ?0.1?

       ::term::ansi::code::macros::frame string



       This package provides higher level control sequences for more complex shapes.


              This  command  is for introspection. It returns as its result a list containing the
              names of all attribute commands.

       ::term::ansi::code::macros::import ?ns? ?arg...?
              This command imports some or all attribute commands into the namespace ns. This  is
              by default the namespace macros. Note that this is relative namespace name, placing
              the imported command into a child of the current namespace. By default all commands
              are  imported,  this  can  howver  be restricted by listing the names of the wanted
              commands after the namespace argument.

       ::term::ansi::code::macros::menu menu
              The description of a menu is converted into a formatted rectangular block of  text,
              with  the  menu  command characters highlighted using bold red text.  The result is
              returned as the result of the command.

              The description,  menu,  is  a  dictionary  mapping  from  menu  label  to  command

       ::term::ansi::code::macros::frame string
              The  paragraph  of  text contained in the string is padded with spaces at the right
              margin, after normalizing internal tabs, and then put into a  frame  made  of  box-
              graphics. The result is returned as the result of the command.
