<H2>GUI Frontend:</H2>
xorriso itself is entirely controlled by text commands. In dialog mode,
xorriso reads them as text lines from standard input.
Together with some helpful xorriso commands, it is quite easy for frontend
programs to operate a separate xorriso process.
<BR>
Other than the usual batch programs, xorriso will take care of maintaining
the emerging ISO image model. Its state can be inquired by the frontend
at any time. The frontend is supposed to care for the display of the inquired
xorriso state and to send xorriso commands to manipulate the ISO image model.
<BR>
As a proof of concept, there is a Tcl/Tk script which can
be launched by shell command <KBD>xorriso-tcltk</KBD>

The script <KBD>xorriso-tcltk</KBD>
is part of the tarball and gets installed by <KBD>make install</KBD>. If a
xorriso distro package does not install it, you may get it directly from

You will probably have to give it x-permission after download. Some browsers
insist in adding &quot;.htm&quot; to the file name.
<BR>
Further you need xorriso >= 1.2.6, Tcl, Tk >= 8.4,
Tcl/Tk package &quot;BWidget&quot;.
