NAME

tcllib_sources - Tcllib - How To Get The Sources

Table Of Contents

DESCRIPTION

Welcome to Tcllib, the Tcl Standard Library. Note that Tcllib is not a package itself. It is a collection of (semi-independent) Tcl packages that provide utility functions useful to a large collection of Tcl programmers.

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

For builders and developers we additionally provide

  1. Tcllib - The Installer's Guide.

  2. Tcllib - The Developer's Guide.

respectively.

Source Location

The official repository for Tcllib can be found at http://core.tcl-lang.org/tcllib

Retrieval

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.

  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://core.tcl-lang.org/tcllib  tcllib.fossil

followed by

mkdir tcllib
cd tcllib
fossil open ../tcllib.fossil

to get a checkout of the head of the trunk.
