  • package require Tcl 8.5


Welcome to Struct, a set of packages providing various data structures to Tcl, and additional operations for existing Tcl structures.

This document is a guide for developers working on Struct, i.e. maintainers fixing bugs, extending the package's functionality, etc.

Please read

  1. Struct - License,

  2. Struct - How To Get The Sources, and

  3. Struct - The Installer's Guide

first, if that was not done already. Here we assume that the sources are already available in a directory of your choice, and that you not only know how to build and install them, but also have all the necessary requisites to actually do so. The guide to the sources in particular also explains which source code management system is used, where to find it, how to set it up, etc.

Playing with Struct

We currently do not have demo applications.

Developing for Struct

Directory structure


This directory contains the documentation sources. The texts are written in doctools format, whereas the figures are a mixture of TeX (math formulas), and tklib's dia(gram) package and application.


This directory contains the documentation converted to regular manpages (nroff) and HTML. It is called embedded because these files, while derived, are part of the fossil repository, i.e. embedded into it. This enables fossil to access and display these files when serving the repositories' web interface. The "Command Reference" link at http://chiselapp.com/user/andreas_kupries/repository/Struct/home is, for example, accessing the generated HTML.
