20.1 Tkinter -- Python interface to Tcl/Tk

The Tkinter module (``Tk interface'') is the standard Python interface to the Tk GUI toolkit. Both Tk and Tkinter are available on most Unix platforms, as well as on Windows and Macintosh systems. (Tk itself is not part of Python; it is maintained at ActiveState.)
