Tcl/Tk 8.1b3 for Windows, Binary Distribution

RCS: @(#) $Id: README.binary,v 1.2.2.6 1999/03/17 21:29:58 stanton Exp $ 

1. Introduction
--------------- 

This directory contains the binary distribution of Tcl/Tk 8.1b3 for
Windows.  It was compiled with Microsoft Visual C++ 5.0 using Win32
API, so that it will run under Windows NT and Windows 95.  The
................................................................................

The binary release is distributed as a self-extracting archive called
tcl81.exe.  The setup program which will prompt you for an
installation directory.  It will create the installation heirarchy
under the specified directory, and install a wish application icon
under the program manager group of your choice.

We are no longer supporting use of
Tcl with 16-bit versions of Windows.  Microsoft has completely dropped
support of the Win32s subsystem.  If you still need 16-bit support,
you can get win32s and the 16-bit thunking dll (tcl1680.dll) from the
Scriptics web site at ftp://ftp.scriptics.com/pub/tcl/misc.

4. Summary of changes in Tcl 8.1
--------------------------------
The most important changes in Tcl 8.1 are summarized below. See
the README and changes files in the distribution
for more complete information on what has changed, including both feature
changes and bug fixes.
................................................................................
  although it is based on early work done by Richard Hipp.  We have
  done some testing on a multiprocessor Solaris machine, but none on
  Windows or other flavors of UNIX on a multiprocessor.

6. Known Bugs/Missing Features
------------------------------

- Blocking "after" commands (e.g. "after 3000") don't work on Win32s.
- Clock command fails to handle daylight savings time boundaries for
  things like "last week".
- Background processes aren't properly detached on NT.
- File events only work on sockets and pipes.
- Files/console/serial ports don't support nonblocking I/O.
- There is no support for custom cursors/application icons.  The core
  set of X cursors is supported, although you cannot change their color.
