 ANNOUNCE: Tcl Dynamic Loader package version 0.1


>Tcl Dynamic Loader

It's a funny old world.  What's that expression?, 'plagiarism is the
sincerest form of flattery' (or something like that).

When I was designing the perl DynaLoader interface I did look into the
early work done for tcl dynamic loading. (In the end very little carried
over, although I did try to allow for a form of pseudo-static linking).

[ I think the reason my name does not appear on the list above is
  that I wrote the document it was copied from :-) I would appreciate
  a mention in later versions ;-) ]

>The current version (0.1) only supports:

>dlopen      --> sun os, solaris, ...

GNU dld for linux is on the way out. Latest versions of Linux support
ELF format objects and the, fast becoming standard, dlopen() function.
dlopen() is much easier to support.
