Tk_SetAppName associates a name with a given application
and records that association on the display containing
with the application's main window. After this procedure
has been invoked, other applications on the display will
be able to use the send command to invoke operations in
the application. If name is already in use by some other
application on the display, then a new name will be gener
ated by appending `` #2'' to name; if this name is also
in use, the number will be incremented until an unused
name is found. The return value from the procedure is a
pointer to the name actually used.
If the application already has a name when Tk_SetAppName
is called, then the new name replaces the old name.
Tk_SetAppName also adds a send command to the applica
tion's interpreter, which can be used to send commands
from this application to others on any of the displays
where the application has windows.
The application's name registration persists until the
interpreter is deleted or the send command is deleted from
interp, at which point the name is automatically unregis
tered and the application becomes inaccessible via send.
