This TIP proposes to deprecate
Tcl_MakeSafe, and fully remove it
in Tcl 9.0
|For a discussion why
There is no known extension using
Tcl_MakeSafe. And if there were,
Tcl_MakeSafe would not
be doing the expected job anyway. It is not - generally - possible for a non-safe interpreter to
become safe: The core doesn't know which of the commands added after construction are supposed
to be safe or not. So, the only way to create a safe interpreter should be to start with one
from the start.
