SYNOPSIS

       tk_optionMenu pathName varName value ?value value ...?
_________________________________________________________________

DESCRIPTION

       This  procedure  creates  an  option menubutton whose name is pathName, plus an associated
       menu.  Together they allow the user to select  one  of  the  values  given  by  the  value
       arguments.  The current value will be stored in the global variable whose name is given by
       varName and it will also be displayed as the label in the option menubutton.  The user can
       click  on the menubutton to display a menu containing all of the values and thereby select
       a new value.  Once a new value is selected, it will be stored in the variable  and  appear
       in the option menubutton.  The current value can also be changed by setting the variable.

       The  return  value from tk_optionMenu is the name of the menu associated with pathName, so
       that the caller can change its configuration options or manipulate it in other ways.
