NAME
       Tk::FBox	- a file dialog

SYNOPSIS
	   use Tk::FBox;
	   $file = $mw->FBox(...)->Show;

DESCRIPTION
       "Tk::FBox" is the dialog	implementation behind the "getOpenFile",
       "getSaveFile", and "chooseDirectory" method calls in the	Unix/X11
       world. As such, it supports all options for these methods and
       additionally:

       -sortcmd	=> sub { $_[0] cmp $_[1] }
	   Specified a callback	for changing the sorting of the	icons in the
	   "IconList" widget. By default, perl's "cmp" operator	will be	used.

	   From	the source code:

	     # Using -sortcmd is really	strange	:-(
	     # $top->getOpenFile(-sortcmd => sub { package Tk::FBox; uc	$b cmp uc $a});
	     # or, un-perlish, but useable (now	activated in code):
	     # $top->getOpenFile(-sortcmd => sub { uc $_[1] cmp	uc $_[0]});

	   This	is an experimental option!

       -type =>	$type
	   Type	should be "open" for choosing existing files to	open
	   (default), "save" for choosing existing or non-existing files to
	   save, or "dir" for choosing directories.

       -filter => $glob
	   A file glob to restrict displayed files. This is only active	if no
	   -filetypes are defined.

       -force => $bool
	   If true, then there will be no dialog if a file already exists.
