Description

The label command creates a new window (given by the pathName argument) and makes it into a label widget. Additional options, described above, may be specified on the command line or in the option database to configure aspects of the label such as its colors, 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, but pathName's parent must exist.

A label is a widget that displays a textual string or bitmap. The label can be manipulated in a few simple ways, such as changing its relief or text, using the commands described below.
