The toolkit is a collection of tool programs that are funtionally packaged together with a common look and feel that are launched from a toolkit home page. The collection of tools available with each kit, along with many of the look and feel paramters, are controlled by a toolkit configuration file. Each tool program beloging to the toolkit must be able to utilize the information in this configuration file in a consistent way. Also database generated ads must be displayed and page views must be correctly logged. Each program that is called from the toolkit home page can have custom parameters passed to it that are unique to that specific program. It must also accept the "tkconfig" paramter, which defines the root name of configuration file. The actual file naem consists of this parameter value appended to it. If the tkconfig parameter is not supplied then the default name of "toolkit" should be assumed.
