The XPA messaging system provides seamless communication between many kinds
of Unix programs, including X programs and Tcl/Tk programs. It also provides
an easy way for users to communicate with these XPA-enabled programs by
executing XPA client commands in the shell or by utilizing such commands in
scripts. Because XPA works both at the programming level and the shell level,
it is a powerful tool for unifying any analysis environment: users and
programmers have great flexibility in choosing the best level or levels at
which to access XPA services, and client access can be extended or modified
easily at any time.
This package contains the additional tools.
