Using Snack on the web

General information on using Tcl/Tk on the web can be found at

Suppose you want to create a web page with an embedded real time spectrogram. A very simple program to do this using Snack could look like this
package require snack
option add *background grey75

sound s
pack  [ canvas .c -width 600 -height 200]
.c create spectrogram 0 0 -sound s -width 600 -height 200 -pixelspersecond 250
pack  [ frame .f -height 35] -fill x
place [ button .f.r -text Record -command {s record}] -relx .3 -anchor n
place [ button .f.s -text Stop -wi 6 -command {s stop}] -relx .5 -anchor n
place [ button .f.p -text Play -wi 6 -command {s play}] -relx .7 -anchor n

.c create spectrogram 0 0 -sound s -width 600 -height 200 -pixelspersecond 250

Save this piece of code in a file named speg.tcl and put it in the same directory as your HTML page. This page should contain an embed tag like this

<EMBED SRC=speg.tcl WIDTH=600 HEIGHT=235>

When you access your web page it will contain an embedded application looking like this (after recording something into it)

If you already have the plug-in installed you can play with the spectrogram below right now

You can also try the above script interactively in your browser window using Jeff Hobbs TkCon.
