       tk_dialog - Create modal dialog and wait for response

       tk_dialog window title text bitmap default string string ...

       This  procedure	is  part  of  the  Tk  script  library.	 Its arguments
       describe a dialog box:

       window Name of top-level window to use for dialog.  Any existing window
	      by this name is destroyed.

       title  Text to appear in the window manager's title bar for the dialog.

       text   Message to appear in the top portion of the dialog box.

       bitmap If  non-empty,  specifies a bitmap to display in the top portion
	      of the dialog, to the left of the text.  If  this	 is  an	 empty
	      string then no bitmap is displayed in the dialog.

	      If  this	is  an	integer greater than or equal to zero, then it
	      gives the index of the button that is to be the  default	button
	      for  the dialog (0 for the leftmost button, and so on).  If less
	      than zero or an empty string then there  won't  be  any  default

       string There  will  be  one  button  for each of these arguments.  Each
	      string specifies text to display in a button, in order from left
	      to right.

       After creating a dialog box, tk_dialog waits for the user to select one
       of the buttons either by clicking on the button with the	 mouse	or  by
       typing  return  to invoke the default button (if any).  Then it returns
       the index of the selected button:  0 for the leftmost button, 1 for the
       button  next  to	 it,  and  so on.  If the dialog's window is destroyed
       before the user selects one of the buttons, then -1 is returned.

       While waiting for the user to respond, tk_dialog	 sets  a  local	 grab.
       This prevents the user from interacting with the application in any way
       except to invoke the dialog box.
