It does indeed.

As for file dialogs.

About a year ago I did a small attempt at working with a small 
gui builder for tcl/tk called vtcl.
I wrote a little erlang program that took the tcl output from
vtcl and makes an erlang program out of it.
It doesn't work very well but it;s a start. I include the program
as well as getfile.tcl which is generated by vtcl, it translates 
fairly well, the generated erlang code looks abit ugly but a 
M-x indent-region in emacs makes the code (almost) readable.

Here's the erlang code ......

And here's some tcl code which can loaded and fiddled with in
vtcl as well as translated by vtcl.erl into an erlang file

Do what you please with this, throw it away, rewrite it
or whatever.
