       tk_chooseDirectory  -  pops  up	a  dialog box for the user to select a

       tk_chooseDirectory ?option value ...?

       The procedure tk_chooseDirectory pops up a dialog box for the  user  to
       select  a  directory.  The following option-value pairs are possible as
       command line arguments:

       -initialdir dirname
	      Specifies that the directories in directory should be  displayed
	      when  the	 dialog	 pops  up. If this parameter is not specified,
	      then the directories in the current working directory  are  dis‐
	      played.  If  the parameter specifies a relative path, the return
	      value will convert the relative path to an absolute path.	  This
	      option may not always work on the Macintosh.  This is not a bug.
	      Rather, the General Controls control panel on the Mac allows the
	      end user to override the application default directory.

       -parent window
	      Makes  window  the  logical  parent of the dialog. The dialog is
	      displayed on top of its parent window.

       -title titleString
	      Specifies a string to display as the title of the dialog box. If
	      this  option is not specified, then a default title will be dis‐

       -mustexist boolean
	      Specifies whether the user may specify non-existant directories.
	      If  this parameter is true, then the user may only select direc‐
	      tories that already exist.  The default value is false.
