       Tk::NoteBook - display several windows in limited space with notebook

	 use Tk::NoteBook;
	 $w = $frame->NoteBook();
	 $page1	= $w->add("page1", options);
	 $page2	= $w->add("page2", options);
	 $page2	= $w->add("page2", options);

       The NoteBook widget provides a notebook metaphor	to display several
       windows in limited space. The notebook is divided into a	stack of pages
       of which	only one is displayed at any time. The other pages can be
       selected	by means of choosing the visual	"tabs" at the top of the
       widget. Additionally, the <Tab> key may be used to traverse the pages.
       If -underline is	used, Alt- bindings will also work.

       The widget takes	all the	options	that a Frame does. In addition,	it
       supports	the following options:

	   If set to false (default and	recommended), the size of the NoteBook
	   will	match the size of the largest page. Otherwise the size will
	   match the size of the current page causing the NoteBook to change
	   size	when different pages of	different sizes	are selected.

	   The amount of internal horizontal padding around the	pages.

	   The amount of internal vertical padding around the pages.

	   The background color	of the tabs and	back page.


	   The color of	the focus border around	the tabs.

	   The font of the tab labels.


	   Horizonzal padding around the tab label.

	   Vertical padding around the tab label.

       The following methods may be used with a	NoteBook object	in addition to
       standard	methods.

       add(pageName, options)
	   Adds	a page with name pageName to the notebook. Returns an object
	   of type Frame. The recognized options are:

	       Specifies how the information in	a tab is to be displayed. Must
	       be one of n, ne,	e, se, s, sw, w, nw or center.

	       Specifies a bitmap to display on	the tab	of this	page. The
	       bitmap is displayed only	if none	of the -label or -image
	       options are specified.

	       Specifies an image to display on	the tab	of this	page. The
	       image is	displayed only if the -label option is not specified.

	       Specifies the text string to display on the tab of this page.

	       When there are multiple lines of	text displayed in a tab, this
	       option determines the justification of the lines.

	       Specifies a callback to be called the first time	the page is
	       shown on	the screen. This option	can be used to delay the
	       creation	of the contents	of a page until	necessary. It can be
	       useful in situations where there	are a large number of pages in
	       a NoteBook widget; with -createcmd you do not have to make the
	       user wait until all pages are constructed before	displaying the
	       first page.

	       Specifies a callback to be called whenever this page is raised
	       by the user.

	       Specifies whether this page can be raised by the	user. Must be
	       either normal or	disabled.

	       Specifies the integer index of a	character to underline in the
	       tab. This option	is used	by the default bindings	to implement
	       keyboard	traversal for menu buttons and menu entries. 0
	       corresponds to the first	character of text displayed on the
	       widget, 1 to the	next character and so on.

	       This option specifies the maximum line length of	the label
	       string on this tab. If the line length of the label string
	       exceeds this length, then it is wrapped onto the	next line so
	       that no line is longer than the specified length. The value may
	       be specified in any standard forms for screen distances.	If
	       this value is less than or equal	to 0, then no wrapping is
	       done: lines will	break only at newline characters in the	text.

	   Deletes the page identified by pageName.

       pagecget(pageName, -option)
	   Returns the current value of	the configuration option given by
	   -option in the page given by	pageName. Option may have any of the
	   values accepted in the add method.

       pageconfigure(pageName, options)
	   Like	configure for the page indicated by pageName. Options may be
	   any of the options accepted by the add method.

	   Returns a list consisting of	the names of all currently defined
	   pages, i.e.,	those created with the add method.

	   Returns the page with name pageName.

	   Raise the page identified by	pageName.

	   Returns the name of the currently raised page.

	   Return the dimensions of the	tab area.

	   Identify the	tab's page name	under the specified coordinates.
	   Return an empty string if there's no	tab.

	   Return a list of all	pages.

	   Return the page name	of the tab with	the current focus.

	   Return the page name	of the tab which would receive the next	focus.

	   Return the page name	of the tab which had the previous focus.

	   Return the page name	of the active tab.

       The options "-width" and	"-height" do not work.
