       toolbar - GUI for Starting Tools and User Contributions


       The Toolbar application is deprecated and will be removed in R16.

       Toolbar  makes  it easier to use the different Erlang tools - and the user contributions -
       which are provided. It has a graphical user interface with an icon for each tool. Clicking
       the icon activates the corresponding tool.

       All  tools to be included on Toolbar must have a configuration file containing information
       about  the  tool,  for  example  its  start  function  and  help   information   location.
       Configuration files must have the .tool suffix.

       When  started,  Toolbar automatically checks for *.tool files in the current path and adds
       the corresponding tools. For each ebin directory found in the path, it will also look in a
       priv directory next to it. This is a feature of the Erlang file structure.


       start() -> ok | already_started

              Creates a window containing tool icons.

       version() -> string()

              Returns the current version number of Toolbar.

       update() -> ok | {error,not_started}

              Makes  a  search  for new tool files in the current path and adds the corresponding
              tools to Toolbar window.

       quit() -> ok | {error,not_started}

       create_tool_file() -> ok | {error,not_started}

              Starts the GUI used for creating and editing tool files.

       add_gs_contribs() -> ok | {error,not_started}

              Adds the path to the directory where the GS contributions are situated and add  the
              tools found there, if any.
