compiling required). This release is a minor version change which
fixes numerous bugs and provides enhancements as well.

Tcllib 1.9 release notes

Hello World, welcome to Tcllib 1.9.

This release is a minor version change which fixes numerous bugs and
provides enhancements as well, to existing modules, and via newly
added modules.


The released distributions can be downloaded from


Available are gzipped, zipped, and bzipped tarballs, and a starkit.


* For the starkit and starpack just execute the file and a GUI based
  installer will pop up. Fill out the paths, then run the installation.

* For the tarballs unpack them in some directory /foo, then run the
  file "/foo/installer.tcl". This will invoke the same installer used
  in the starkit and starpack.

  Note: While the installer will open up a GUI by default (and if
  possible), a command line based installation is provided too. Run the
  installer with the option "-help" to see what is available.
