Not sure what language you're using, but to the best of my knowledge, gtk entry is not a command. Using a gtk entry to enter some text and store the contents is illustrated by the following code:
Code:
   e = Gtk.Entry()
   e.set_text("this is a test")
   my_text = e.get_text()
   print "my_text = ",my_text

To retrieve the text, you'll still have to use something like
Code:
my_entry = gtk_entry_new()
my_text = gtk_entry_get_text(my_entry)
which will return the text in the entry and store it in the variable my_text.
