SYNOPSIS

       tk_optionMenu w varName value ?value value ...?
_________________________________________________________________

DESCRIPTION

       This  procedure  creates  an  option  menubutton whose name is w, 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 w, so that the
       caller can change its configuration options or manipulate it in other ways.
