Old Tcl/Tk url
Authored by: kyngchaos on Nov 15, '03 11:53:37AM

About Apple's Tcl framework, well it's just Tcl, no Tk, and no private headers (tho I'm not sure how useful those are), and no debug version. On the plus side, Apple put symlinks to the libs and headers in /usr to make linking to it a little simpler.

Now that Apple updated it, this creates a bit of a mess - 2 Tcl Aquas, each with their own custom bits. Maybe the Tcl/Tk Aqua guys will release some extra installers: 1 to add Tk Aqua and 1 to add the Batteries Included.

Funny thing tho, the one thing I need Tcl/Tk for (GRASS GIS) requires an X11 version, so I had to build my own anyways. All this Tcl/Tk Aqua stuff is dead weight for now.

for 'compatibility' w/ what's 'out there' (and less my own development) i've had fewer probs by rm'ing the existing Apple install, and installing the Tcl/Tk BI framework install.

but sure, i'm basing this on prior experiences ... and making assumptions abt the Panther env.
