This patch is for gathering together alterations required to create the new [dict] command and object type.

Logged In: YES user_id=80530 sorry about the typo. The current name is "hashDictionary"

Logged In: YES user_id=80530 I see that the new Tcl_ObjType struct, tclDictType, has the name field value of "hasDictionary". Why not use the name "dict" more in keeping with names of other Tcl_ObjType's in the core?

File Added - 46635: 654893.patch Logged In: YES user_id=80530 here is an updated patch, diff'd from today's HEAD, including the new files. A few bugs fixed here, one on Dict refcounting, and one that the [dict] command is safe to give in safe interps. Note that on platforms where TCL_WIDE_INT_IS_LONG is #define'd, the patch for Tcl Bug 713562 must also be applied for this patch to work. This passes all tests in the dict.test test suite. I have not checked whether that test suite covers/agrees with TIP 111.

Logged In: YES user_id=79902 Just a note in passing (because I can't be bothered to reupload all the patches): the structure Tcl_DictSearch does not need an objPtr member, as it is only ever assigned to in one place and never compared. Behaviour should be right though.

Logged In: YES user_id=79902 Some documentation as part of the TIP itself (since docs really form part of the spec, not the impl)

Logged In: YES user_id=79902 OK, here's a working version of the dictionary code. You need the patch, the tests and the C file. Apply the patch in the normal manner (:^) put tclDictObj.c in generic/, put dict.test in tests/, and rebuild. (Windows users will need to do a bit of work to update their makefile. I unashamedly develop only on Unix, though the source itself should be completely portable.) Still needs documentation...

File Added - 38205: tclDictObj.c Logged In: YES user_id=79902 All that, plus more comments, plus an implementation of the [dict] command (pre-TIP state). More work still needed, but this is now much closer to being ready for testing...

File Added - 37748: tclDictObj.c Logged In: YES user_id=79902 Here's an (untested) piece of code that implements a suitable Tcl_Obj and some miscellaneous accessor API functions. Much still to do...
