        tkaeca - GUI interface for aeca, using TCL/TK




        The tkaeca command is used to provide a GUI interface to aeca(1).  Its use should be
        self-evident to anyone familiar with Aegis.

        The top line of the screen contains button for selecting the project and the change.
        They will be defaulted whenever possible, using the usual Aegis defaulting rules.  Click
        on the buttons to obtain a pick list if you want to change; then double-click an item to
        select it.  (I would have used tk_optionMenu, but it doesn't have a scroll bar, even when
        all the items don't fit on the screen.)

        The middle section contains text entry areas, for editing the brief_description and
        description fields of the change attributes.  The text wraps in a natural way, both here
        and in (say) the “tkaeca -list chand details” listing, so only use newlines to indicate

        The lower section contains two boxes.  The first is the testing required for the change -
        select as many or as few as is appropriate.  The second a set of radio buttons to select
        the change cause - pick one.

        The “OK” and “Cancel” buttons do what you expect.  The cancel button simply quits.  The
        OK button runs the aeca(1) command - if anything goes wrong (e.g. asking for testing
        exemptions you can't have) then the error message will be displayed in the message area
        at the bottom of the window.


        There are no command line options.  It is best to run this command in the background.


        The tkaeca command will exit with a status of 1 on any error.  The tkaeca command will
        only exit with a status of 0 if there are no errors.


        See aegis(1) for a list of environment variables which may affect this command.  See
        aepconf(5) for the project configuration file's project_specific field for how to set
        environment variables for all commands executed by Aegis.
