     NAME
          label - Create and manipulate label widgets

     SYNOPSIS
          label pathName ?options?

     STANDARD OPTIONS
          -anchor        -font               -justify
          -background    -foreground         -relief
          -bitmap        -highlightcolor     -takefocus
          -borderwidth   -highlightthickness -text
          -disabledcolor -image              -underline

     WIDGET-SPECIFIC OPTIONS
          -height dist
               Specifies a desired height for the label.  If this
               option isn't specified, the label's desired height is
               computed from the size of the image or bitmap or text
               being displayed in it.

          -width dist
               Specifies a desired width for the label.  If this
               option isn't specified, the label's desired width is
               computed from the size of the image or bitmap or text
               being displayed in it.

     DESCRIPTION
          The label command creates a new window (given by the path-
          Name argument) and makes it into a label widget.  Additional
          options, described above, may be specified on the command
          line to configure aspects of the label such as its colours,
          font, text, and initial relief.  The label command returns
          its pathName argument.  At the time this command is invoked,
          there must not exist a window named pathName.

          A label is a widget that displays a textual string, bitmap
          or image.  If text is displayed, it must all be in a single
          font, but it can occupy multiple lines on the screen (if it
          contains newlines) and one of the characters may optionally
          be underlined using the underline option.  The label can be
          manipulated in a few simple ways, such as changing its
          relief or text, using the commands described below.

     WIDGET COMMAND
          The label command creates a new Tk command whose name is
          pathName.  This command may be used to invoke various opera-
          tions on the widget.  It has the following general form:
               pathName option ?arg arg ...?

     LABEL(9)                                                 LABEL(9)

          Option and the args determine the exact behaviour of the
          command.  The following commands are possible for label wid-
          gets:

          pathName cget option
               Returns the current value of the configuration option
               given by option.  Option may have any of the values
               accepted by the label command.

          pathName configure ?option? ?value option value ...?
               Query or modify the configuration options of the wid-
               get.  If no option is specified, returns a list of all
               of the available options for pathName.  If one or more
               option-value pairs are specified, then the command mod-
               ifies the given widget option(s) to have the given
               value(s);  in this case the command returns an empty
               string.  Option may have any of the values accepted by
               the label command.

     BINDINGS
          When a new label is created, it has no default event bind-
          ings: labels are not intended to be interactive.
