       "Tickit::Console" - build full-screen console-style applications


        my $console = Tickit::Console->new;

        Tickit->new( root => $console )->run;


       A "Tickit::Console" instance is a subclass of Tickit::Widget::VBox intended to help
       building a full-screen console-style application which presents the user with one or more
       scrollable text areas, selectable as tabs on a ribbon, with a text entry area at the
       bottom of the screen for entering commands or other data. As a Tickit::Widget subclass it
       can be added anywhere within a widget tree, though normally it would be used as the root
       widget for a Tickit instance.


   $console = Tickit::Console->new( %args )
       Returns a new instance of a "Tickit::Console". Takes the following named arguments:

       on_line => CODE
               Callback to invoke when a line of text is entered in the entry widget.

                $on_line->( $active_tab, $text )

       tab_class => STRING
               Optional. If set, gives a class name (which should be a subclass of
               Tickit::Console::Tab) to construct newly-added tabs with. This setting allows an
               application to provide new methods in tabs to change behaviours.

       timestamp_format, datestamp_format
               Optional. If supplied, these will be stored as default values to pass to the tab
               constructor in the "add_tab" method.


   $tab = $console->add_tab( %args )
       Adds a new tab to the console, and returns a Tickit::Console::Tab object representing it.

       Takes the following named arguments:

       name => STRING
               Name for the tab.

       on_line => CODE
               Optional. Provides a different callback to invoke when a line of text is entered
               while this tab is active. Invoked the same way as above.

       make_widget => CODE
               Optional. Gives a piece of code used to construct the actual Tickit::Widget used
               as this tab's child in the ribbon. A "Tickit::Widget::Scroller" to hold the tab's
               content will be passed in to this code, which should construct some sort of widget
               tree with that inside it, and return it. This can be used to apply a decorative
               frame, place the scroller in a split box or other layout along with other widgets,
               or various other effects.

                $tab_widget = $make_widget->( $scroller )

       Any other named arguments are passed to the tab's constructor.

   $index = $console->active_tab_index
   $tab = $console->active_tab
   $console->remove_tab( $tab_or_index )
   $console->move_tab( $tab_or_index, $delta )
   $console->activate_tab( $tab_or_index )
       These methods are all passed through to the underlying Tickit::Widget::Tabbed object.

   $console->bind_key( $key, $code )
       Installs a callback to invoke if the given key is pressed, overwriting any previous
       callback for the same key. The code block is invoked as

        $code->( $console, $key )

       If $code is missing or "undef", any existing callback is removed.
