Description:

There isn't a page (so far as I can see or find with Google) that describes how to build and install the critcl accelerators for tcllib. This is causing significant problems for some users (who apparently don't have the option of installing pre-built versions due to the way their package manager works).

User Comments: aku added on 2019-05-07 22:58:29:

Commit [6612c2b8a881d7dd] brings the documentation work into trunk, making it official.

With respect to this ticket, now see Section Critcl & Accelerators of the Installation Guide.
