Look at the widget tour again. There are some examples using gif files
from the file system. You need to do something like this:

image create photo <name> -file <filename>

Then you can use the image <name> inside the tcl program.

Eric Foster-Johnson's book even says, "To get your GIF image to base64
encoding, you can often take advantage of MIME-compliant e-mail programs.
Covert your image to an attachment and save the attachment data. In
addition, I find the freeware programs uudeview and uuenview very helpful."

This also won't work for tk4.2.

Like I said in my other mail, you can try calling me at 699-7676 for help.
I did post a partial reimplementation, but I still need to put the back
and next buttons in before I want real feedback.
