Subject: -XI- Where can I get these packages?

Tcl and Extended Tcl have been posted to comp.sources.misc in the past,
appearing In volume 25 and then Tcl appeared again in volume 26 and can
be found at most comp.sources.misc archive sites in the tcl and tclx
directories.  These are quite old versions actually, but are still usable.

A few of the sites which either mirror the Tcl/Tk submissions or have special
versions are:

                        release using Microsoft Visual C++.

tcljava0.2.tar.Z
tcljava0.2.tar.gz       Compress or gzipped file containing the source and
                        examples for the tcljava integration library.
                        Released 10 July 96.  See
                        <URL: http://www.*-*-*.com/ ~kcorey/tcljava/refman.html>
                        for the reference manual. (also included)

jbrowser.tar.Z          A silly little java class browser.  Provides
                        a tree widget in pure Tcl/Tk.

spec1b1.exe             A self-installing binary release of the SpecTcl
                        1.0 beta 1, GUI-builder for Windows'95 and NT,
                        including support for Java (SpecJava). This
                        superceeds the 0.3 release.  Executing this file
                        will install SpecTcl (and SpecJava) on your
                        computer.  This version of SpecTcl works with
                        tk4.2b1/tcl7.6b1 (or above) with no
                        modifications required.

menued08.tar.gz -       A menu editor that runs standalone now, but will
                        ultimately be able to run as a plug-in to SpecTcl.

html_library-0.3.tar.gz Enhanced version of html_library-0.1.tar.gz
                        Supports all HTML/2.0 features, including
                        forms.

mx.tar.Z                Sources and documentation for a mouse-based text
                        editor (mx) and terminal emulator (tx) based on
                        Tcl.  This is a very old release:  it uses an old
                        version of Tcl (which is included) and doesn't
                        even use Tk;  it uses an ancient toolkit called
                        "Sx".  These tools will eventually be replaced
                        with new tools based on Tk and the newest Tcl.

mx-2.5.tar.Z            Newer version of mx (see above) that uses the
                        standard X selection mechanism rather than the
                        homegrown mechanism used by previous versions.
                        Version 2.5 is not backwards compatible with
                        previous versions (you can't cut and paste between
                        the two). Still uses sx and an old version of
                        Tcl (both of which are included).

mx-2.5.patch.Z          Patch file for converting mx 2.4 sources into 2.5.
                        Invoke patch in the top-level mx directory
                        with the "-p1" switch and an uncompressed version of
                        this file, e.g. "patch -p1 < mx-2.5.patch".

engManual.tar.Z         Compressed tar file for a directory containing
                        the Tcl/Tk Engineering Manual, which describes
                        the coding and testing conventions used to develop
                        Tcl and Tk.  I strongly encourage other Tcl/Tk
                        developers to follow these conventions, particularly
                        if you want to submit code for possible inclusion
                        into official releases.

book.examples.Z         Compressed file containing ASCII text for nearly all
                        of the examples from the book "Tcl and the Tk Toolkit".

tclUsenix90.ps          postscript for a paper on Tcl that appeared in the
                        Winter 1990 USENIX Conference.

tkUsenix91.ps           Postscript for a paper on Tk that appeared in the
                        Winter 1991 USENIX Conference.

tkF10.ps                Postscript for Figure 10 of the Tk paper.

tut.tar.Z               A collection of materials from a full-day tutorial
                        on Tcl and Tk.  Includes viewgraphs from four
                        one-hour talks.

In addition, there may be older releases of some or all of the above
files;  look for files with earlier release numbers.

Be sure to retrieve files in image mode (type "type image" to FTP)
in order to make sure that you don't lose bits.

Most of these files are compressed tar files;  to get back the
original directory hierarchies, type a command like the following for
each file you retrieved:
                zcat tk4.1p1.tar.Z | tar xf -
This will create a directory named tk4.1 with all the source files and
documentation for that release.  For files with ".gz" extensions, use
a command like the following instead of the one above:
                gunzip -c tk4.1p1.tar.gz | tar xf -

Each of the releases has a README file in the top-level directory that
describes how to compile the release, where to find documentation, etc.

In addition to the information here, there are many other Tcl/Tk extensions,
scripts, and applications in the Tcl contributed archive, which is
currently located on the machine ftp.neosoft.com in the public
FTP directory /pub/tcl.

There is also a collection of Web pages on Tcl and Tk at the URL
http://www.*-*-*.com/

Questions or problems with any of these distributions should be directed
to the comp.lang.tcl newsgroup.

Subject: -B- The Tcl/Tk User Contributions Archive

Contributions to the Tcl/Tk Contrib Archive are most welcome --
please upload them to:

        <URL:ftp://ftp.neosoft.com/languages/tcl/incoming/>


note stating the names of the files you uploaded and a brief description
for the index.  Otherwise, you must upload a README.filename along with
your upload.  Otherwise, your contribution probably won't get into the
archives.

Users without FTP capability should use one of the following mail-based
FTP services (send mail to the appropriate address with "help" in the
body):





WARNING!  The archive maintainer will NOT be automatically archiving anything
posted to comp.lang.tcl or previously to the mailing list.  So if you want
your nifty porting instructions for getting Tcl up on your Seiko wrist watch
or your pen computer to be saved for others benefit, be sure to ftp them into
the archive.

All submissions should be ftp'ed into the above subdirectory.  Please

the filename(s) of your contribution and a brief description (for the
Index).  If you've posted some code to comp.lang.tcl or the Tcl mailing
list, and you want it to be archived at this site, please deposit it in
<URL:ftp://ftp.neosoft.com/tcl/incoming/> or mail it in a suitable form
(preferably uuencoded compressed tar file, but a shar file's OK) to

Also, PLEASE include a {packagename}.README file which describes the
contribution.

The Tcl/Tk archive can also be accessed via the World Wide Web (WWW)
with the URL, <URL: http://www.*-*-*.com/ %7Ewade/HyperTcl/>.

Note: I have noticed that some authors prefer to use plain names rather than
version level type names.  This means that you should a) make note of when
you get a package, and b) check the archive occasionally to see if a newer
version of the package has appeared.

Subject: -D- EMACS modes for Tcl


C mode into a tcl-mode.el.  He mentions that you must use semi-colons at the
end of each statement to get indentation to work right, but he found that
easier than doing without.

The code is on [128.2.214.236]
<URL:ftp://ftp.cs.cmu.edu/afs/cs/user/snl/pub/tcl-mode.el.z>
(don't forget binary mode) as well as
<URL:ftp://ftp.neosoft.com/languages/tcl/alcatel/distrib/tcl-mode.el.Z>.


minor mode to fundamental.


a Tcl mode for GNU emacs.  It's address is
<URL:ftp://ftp.neosoft.com/languages/tcl/alcatel/extensions/tcl.el>.


which is better than his former tcl-help.el.  This is a modified version of
Chris Lindblad's Tcl editing mode.  This new editing mode contains the
help code, a tcl interaction mode, menus, font lock support, etc.  It
is available on the Emacs Lisp Archive at
<URL:ftp://archive.cis.ohio-state.edu/pub/emacs/elisp-archive/modes/tcl.el.Z>

and on

<URL:ftp://ftp.neosoft.com/languages/tcl/alcatel/extensions/tcl.el.gz>


a major mode for tcl scripts.  He posted tcl-mode 1.1 to gnu.emacs.sources
in March and it should be on archive.cis.ohio-state.edu - but I am not able to
locate it.

The latest version of xemacs (formerly lemacs) mentions that it has
a tcl-mode built in.

Subject: -E- The tk toolbox project (obsolete)

The Tk Toolbox & Toolchest project.

The Toolchest consisted of convenience routines for Tcl and Tk - a kind of a
ibc for Tcl.  The toolchest was a collection of commonly used code and
some specialized code such as file selectors, dialogs that take care of
keyboard traversal through items automatically, etc.

Unfortunately, the development effort has currently come to a stop on this
project and it is not yet known when it will be started again.

There was, at one point in the past, a mailing list for discussion of
the tk toolbox, kindly provided by Ari Lemmke.  To subscribe, one wrote a
message with the line:

X-Mn-Admin: join tktools

in the body or header of the message, and sent this message to

Then to write to the list, messages were sent to

X-Mn-Key: TKTOOLS
added to the header or the body of the message.  One especially had to remember
this step when replying to messages from the list.

For more info about the list server (mailnet), one sent

Intermediate snapshots were announced on this mailing list.

If you had problems or were willing to donate code or whatever,
you could contact the code maintainer (one of the three main implementors)

Subject: -O- http files without a WWW client

Within the various TCL FAQs there are references to items in the
form of http://www.*-*-*.com/ ;These are in a form
which are useful to WorldWideWeb (WWW) clients.  But for those unable
to use WWW for some reason, there is a modicum of relief.  To access
these files via email:


2. There is no need for a Subject: line.

3. In the body of the message, type:
GO http://www.*-*-*.com/

4. Any URL can be substituted for the sample above.
Eventually you should get back the file in question.

5. The only restriction is this serves text (HTML and plain) by HTTP
only, no graphics, and no FTP.

For more information about accessing internet files via e-mail, pick up
a copy of the following document:

"INTERNET BY-EMAIL"
Summary: This guide will show you how to retrieve files from FTP sites,
explore the Internet via Gopher, search for information with Archie,
Veronica, or WAIS, tap into the World-Wide Web (WWW), and even access Usenet
newsgroups using E-MAIL AS YOUR ONLY TOOL.

This document is now available from several automated mail servers. To
get the latest edition, send e-mail to one of the addresses below.

Leave Subject blank, and enter only this line in the body of the note:
GET INTERNET BY-EMAIL NETTRAIN F=MAIL


Leave Subject blank, and enter only this line in the body of the note:

From: -XI- Where can I get these packages?
Subject: -P- The patch and gzip command

The patch command is used to apply updates to a source package.  It
assumes that you have the previous version of the source package in
an uncompressed format as well as a file containing one or more modifications
that need to be applied to the original code.

The GNU project's version of the patch command is the one most commonly
used on USENET.  The primary archive for this project is
<URL:ftp://prep.ai.mit.edu/pub/gnu/>.  You will find the source code
located at this FTP site.  Source code for the gzip package, a very common
compression format used on Unix, can be found at this site as well.
For binary versions of either of these programs, you will have to search
what ever the appropriate archive sites are for your machine.

First, get a version of patch and compile and install it.  Then you
might follow a scenario such as this:

The tcl7.4/README says "apply them to the source directory"!

$ mkdir /usr/tcl74      # Pick this directory as appropriate
$ cd /usr3/tcl74
$ mv $HOME/tcl7.4.tar.gz $HOME/tcl7.4p1.patch.gz $HOME/tcl7.4p2.patch.gz $HOME/tcl7.4p3.patch.gz /usr3/tcl74
$ gzip -d < tcl7.4.tar.gz | tar xvvf -
$ cd tcl7.4
$ gzip -d < ../tcl7.4p1.patch.gz | patch -p
$ gzip -d < ../tcl7.4p2.patch.gz | patch -p
$ gzip -d < ../tcl7.4p3.patch.gz | patch -p
$ ./configure --prefix=/usr3/tcl74
$ make
$ make test
$ make install

assuming your *.gz files all reside in your $HOME directory initially.

If you already have gunzip-ed the files in a different directory (such
as /usr3/tcl74/patch/), you could use them like this:

$ cd /usr3/tcl74/tcl7.4
$ patch -p < ../patch/tcl7.4p1.patch

You will get messages from patch "hmm, this looks like" and "hunk #n
succeeded", which will scroll off your screen quite fast.  One user has
suggested that if you are using Unix, you can use the script command to
keep all of the output in a log file which you can then peruse later.

You should not get rejected, failed, or wrong version messages.  If you
get those types of messages, you may have missed a patch that needed to be
made, or may be attempting to patch a version of the files not intended to be
patched.

If the patch is being applied later, you will want to execute a "make
clean" before the make without arguments, to be sure that you have
gotten rid of any files which need to be recreated during the install
process.

You need to be careful as well trying to perform make on different
machines - if you have to switch computers between makes, you should
execute a "make distclean" followed by another configure command.
This ensures that the various assumptions made by the configuration
program are accurate.

Subject: -S- Tutorials on various subjects

There are often questions concerning X security, in particular
relating to Tk's default requirment to refuse to perform send
actions when the user is using xhost rather than xauth for
his/her security.  See <URL: http://www.*-*-*.com/ ;
for a tutorial on X security.

Another good document on Xauth is available at
