       Tk::Table - Scrollable 2	dimensional table of Tk	widgets

	 use Tk::Table;

	 $table	= $parent->Table(-rows => number,
				 -columns => number,
				 -scrollbars =>	anchor,
				 -fixedrows => number,
				 -fixedcolumns => number,
				 -takefocus => boolean);

	 $widget = $table->Button(...);

	 $old =	$table->put($row,$col,$widget);
	 $old =	$table->put($row,$col,"Text");	# simple Label
	 $widget = $table->get($row,$col);

	 $cols = $table->totalColumns;
	 $rows = $table->totalRows;


	 ($row,$col) = $table->Posn($widget);

       Tk::Table is an all-perl	widget/geometry	manager	which allows a two
       dimensional table of arbitary perl/Tk widgets to	be displayed.

       Entries in the Table are	simply ordinary	perl/Tk	widgets. They should
       be created with the Table as their parent. Widgets are positioned in
       the table using:


       If $widget is not a reference it	is treated as a	string,	and a Lable
       widget is created with the string as its	text.

       All the widgets in each column are set to the same width	- the
       requested width of the widest widget in the column.  Likewise, all the
       widgets in each row are set to the same height -	the requested height
       of the tallest widget in	the column.

       A number	of rows	and/or columns can be marked as	'fixed'	- and so can
       serve as	'headings' for the remainder the rows which are	scrollable.

       The requested size of the table as a whole is such that the number of
       rows specified by -rows (default	10), and number	of columns specified
       by -columns (default 10)	can be displayed.

       If the Table is told it can take	the keyboard focus then	cursor and
       scroll keys scroll the displayed	widgets.

       The Table will create and manage	its own	scrollbars if requested	via

       The table can be	emptied	using


       the widgets which were in the table are destroyed.

       The Tk::Table widget is derived from a Tk::Frame, so inherits all its
       configure options.

       The default focus traversal is giving the focus only to the table
       widget as a whole. To enable focus traversal into table cells (e.g. if
       there are embedded entry	widgets), then the option "-takefocus" has to
       be set to 0.

BUGS / Snags / Possible	enhancements
       o   Very	large Tables consume a lot of X	windows.

       o   No equivalent of pack's -anchor/-pad	etc. options
