14 I also went with Pythondialog (which btw works fine here, no problems
15 like described in your other mail), it's ok, but just covers the basic
16 features of Dialog. Things like relabeling buttons etc. are missing.

20 As stated above, it worked for me, but I already had quite a lot of
21 Tcl/Tk stuff installed (for Tkabber).

27 The use portage was actually the reason for me to go with Python.
28 BUT I've never done anything substantially more difficult the "Hello
29 World" (ok, I did a little more, but no much) in Python, so this project
30 was also intended as a way to teach me the language.
32 Sending you the script as it is right now would be of little use, it's
33 jsut a little something getting me started in Python.
35 As I said, after my exams are finished I have more time for this...
