Description: This Tcl extension provides Tcl/Tk app developers with a small, simple splash screen.
A splash screen is a small window without a title bar. It's most often used by applications which must load a large number of resources to start, so a splash screen provides instant confirmation that the program has started and has not crashed.

Rationale: TclMiniSplash's main advantages over some other splash screen packages are: (a) It's tiny, (b) It provides some activity indication, (c) It can be loaded and run from your script just like any other normal package, and, (d) For your convenience, it contains a TAP file for use with ActiveState's TDK.
Latest release: The current version is 0.01, released on 2009-07-18.
Above: Splash screen on Mac OS X. On Mac, it will use the standard Mac background colour.
