[R-SIG-Mac]no mouse control of aqua window

Umh, but Phython and Emacs both open their own windows and then use  
pipes eventually. I'm not sure about Aqua Tcl/tk, I'll have a look, but  
you say that it builds a shell app itself.

I'm not aware of any application that uses the standard I/O from the  
shell and opens its own windows, menus etc. I mean an application that  
after the parsing of argv[] uses printf/scanf.

The AquaInstall I provided is  intended to create a bundle (even if not  
apparently working).

PB can be used via shell but just to (i don't know how to say) "run" pb  
project files.

BTW, as far as I have understood, the term.app take control over any  
event, this means that if I install an event handler it simply does not  
receive any event but apple events, i.e. only iter process  
communications is available. The filtering of events is done by the  
term.app event handler.

I'll be happy if any of you around can figure out how solve the problem  
and I hope to have better explained where I'm actullay blocked.
