Welcome to KineTcl, a binding of the OpenNI framework providing Tcl with access to MS Kinect (tm), and related sensor systems.

The audience of this document is anyone wishing to either have just a look at KineTcl's source code, or build the packages, or to extend and modify them.

For builders and developers we additionally provide

  1. KineTcl - License.

  2. KineTcl - The Installer's Guide.

  3. KineTcl - The Developer's Guide.


Source Location

The official repository for KineTcl can be found at http://chiselapp.com/user/andreas_kupries/repository/KineTcl


Assuming that you simply wish to look at the sources, or build a specific revision, the easiest way of retrieving it is to:

  1. Log into this site, as "anonymous", using the semi-random password in the captcha.

  2. Go to the "Timeline".

  3. Choose the revision you wish to have and

  4. follow its link to its detailed information page.

  5. On that page, choose either the "ZIP" or "Tarball" link to get a copy of this revision in the format of your choice.

Source Code Management

For the curious (or a developer-to-be), the sources are managed by the Fossil SCM. Binaries for popular platforms can be found directly at its download page.

With that tool available the full history can be retrieved via:

    fossil clone  http://chiselapp.com/user/andreas_kupries/repository/KineTcl  kinetcl.fossil

followed by

    mkdir kinetcl
    cd kinetcl
    fossil open ../kinetcl.fossil

to get a checkout of the head of the trunk.
