       tk_dialog window title text bitmap default string string ...

DESCRIPTION
       This procedure is part of the Tk script library.  Its arguments
       describe a dialog box:

       window Name of top-level window to use for dialog.  Any existing window
              by this name is destroyed.

       title  Text to appear in the window manager's title bar for the dialog.

       text   Message to appear in the top portion of the dialog box.

       bitmap If non-empty, specifies a bitmap to display in the top portion
              of the dialog, to the left of the text.  If this is an empty
              string then no bitmap is displayed in the dialog.

       default
              If this is an integer greater than or equal to zero, then it
              gives the index of the button that is to be the default button
              for the dialog (0 for the leftmost button, and so on).  If less
              than zero or an empty string then there won't be any default
              button.

       string There will be one button for each of these arguments.  Each
              string specifies text to display in a button, in order from left
              to right.

       After creating a dialog box, tk_dialog waits for the user to select one
       of the buttons either by clicking on the button with the mouse or by
       typing return to invoke the default button (if any).  Then it returns
       the index of the selected button:  0 for the leftmost button, 1 for the
       button next to it, and so on.  If the dialog's window is destroyed
       before the user selects one of the buttons, then -1 is returned.

       While waiting for the user to respond, tk_dialog sets a local grab.
       This prevents the user from interacting with the application in any way
       except to invoke the dialog box.
