tcllib is a Tcl-only library of standard routines for Tcl (no
compiling required). This release is a minor version change which
fixes numerous bugs and provides enhancements as well.

Tcllib 1.10 release notes
=========================

Hello World, welcome to Tcllib 1.10.

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

Availability
------------

The released distributions can be downloaded from

<http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=12883&package_id=24585&release_id=539177>

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

Installation
------------

* 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.

Acknowledgments
