Title: ico: incorrect use of $img put
Type: Bug Version: trunk

In the ico module there are the following four lines:

/tklib-0.6/modules/ico/ico.tcl(557):	$img put -to 0 0 $colors
/tklib-0.6/modules/ico/ico.tcl(563):    $img put -to $x $y $clr
/tklib-0.6/modules/ico/ico0.tcl(400):	$img put -to 0 0 $colors
/tklib-0.6/modules/ico/ico0.tcl(406):	$img put -to $x $y $clr

This is an incorrect use of the put command. Documentation says:

imageName put data ?option value(s) ...?

However the code in the ico module uses:

imageName put ?option value(s) ...? data

The latter used to be accepted, although undocumented, but will soon no longer be. See:

Fix is easy and consists in swapping the order of the data and the options arguments.
