tkMOO-light, Tcl and Tk
tkMOO-light is implemented using the Tcl programming
language and the Tk graphical widget set. The most stable releases
are Tcl 8.3 and Tk 8.3.
Installing Tcl 8.3 and Tk 8.3
Tcl and Tk are available as precompiled binaries for a range of
platforms or alternatively as source code which you have to compile
Pre-compiled releases are now available for the following platforms,
use the 'Save link as' option on your webbrowser:
- Windows 3.1, Windows 95, Windows 98 and Windows NT:
ftp://ftp.scriptics.com/pub/tcl/tcl8_3/tcl830.exe, then execute it.
The file is a self-extracting executable. It will install the
Tcl and Tk libraries, the
programs, and documentation.
You need to double-click on the tcl830.exe file to start the
installation procedure (a big blue screen). Just follow the
default installation instructions by clicking on [next], [finish]
in the subsequent dialog boxes.
If that all goes well, then you should have a working file
association, which tells Windows to access the wish80.exe
application whenever it's asked to open a .tcl file. Files
with the .tcl suffix should be displayed with a red 'Tk' icon.
- Macintosh (both 68K and PowerPC): Fetch
The file is in binhex format, which is understood by Fetch,
StuffIt, and many other Mac utilities. Double-click on the
downloaded file to install Tcl/Tk.
If you're running on a platform other than the ones listed above,
or if you want to make modifications to Tcl and Tk, you'll need to
retrieve the source releases, which are available separately for
Tcl and Tk in several different forms.
