    81     81   the GUI, or by specifying additional options.
    82     82   
    83     83   [para] The defaults depend on the platform detected (unix/windows) and
    84     84   on the [syscmd tclsh] executable used to run the installer.

    87     87   installation of a Tcllib with the same version without asking back
    88     88   after the initial confirmation is given.
    89     89   
    90     90   Further if the user chooses the same directory as chosen for/by
    91     91   previous installations then these will be overwritten as well.

    17     17   such packages. Trying to use them will result in
