# --------------------------------------------------------------------------
# DESCRIPTION
# Send input read the send command to stdout
#
# USAGE:
# set pid [exec -- tclsh receive_and_print.tcl [tk appname] final_cmd | some_command ?args? &]
#	* pid		- Process identifier of $some_command
#	* args		- Arguments for $some_command
#	* final_cmd	- Command in local Tcl program to execute once when the script exits
#
# Once the receive_and_print (RAP) is started you can invoke ``print_line'' command available in it
# to print any string to stdout. The command takes any number of arguments and prints them all into
# the standard output.
# --------------------------------------------------------------------------

# Initialize
encoding system {utf-8}
package require Tk
wm withdraw .
wm command . "$argv0 $argv"
wm client . [info hostname]

# Parse agruments
set source_app	[lindex $argv 0]
set final_cmd	[lindex $argv 1]
unset argv

## Determinate the host OS
set ::MICROSOFT_WINDOWS 0
if {[string first {Windows} ${tcl_platform(os)}] != -1} {
	# Note:
	#   Microsoft Windows is NOT a POSIX system and because of that we need
	#   to do some workarounds here in order to make the IDE functional there.
	set ::MICROSOFT_WINDOWS 1
}

# Load dde - Dynamic Data Exchange on Microsoft Windows
if {$::MICROSOFT_WINDOWS} {
	package require dde
}

## Perform secure send command
 # Secure means that it will not crash or something like that in case of any errors.
 # But instead it will pop-up an error message to the user (Tk dialog).
 # @parm List args - Arguments for the send command
 # @return void
proc secure_send args {
	if {[catch {
		eval "send $args"
	} result]} then {
		puts stderr "Unknown IO Error :: $result"
		return 1

	} else {
		return 1
	}
}

proc print_line {args} {
	puts $args
}

if {!${::MICROSOFT_WINDOWS}} {
	secure_send $source_app $final_cmd "{[tk appname]}"
} else {
	dde eval $source_app $final_cmd "{[tk appname]}"
