Question /depot/path/wish: bad interpreter:


I am trying to get a program working called stopwatch http://.expect.nist.gov/stopwatch

I have configure and installed relevant tcl8.4 and tk8.4 (.configure etc) without error messages, also Activetcl. My PATH file is
/usr/kerberos/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/games:
/home/maz/bin:/usr/local/ActiveTcl/bin

when I try to run stopwatch (./stopwatch) I get the following message

bash: ./stopwatch: /depot/path/wish: bad interpreter:

Have read the instructions on web page many times, but don't know what I'm doing wrong here. The executables are in /usr/local or /usr/local/ActiveTcl. I'm using Fedora Core 5

Any help appreciated.

Cheers

bash: ./stopwatch: /depot/path/wish: bad interpreter:
Just search and edit stopwatch where "/depot/path/wish" is mentioned and change it where your "wish" is at.
If it's not (default) /usr/bin/wish or in your case /usr/local/bin/wish then type "which wish".

Worked! The # sign made me think it was just a comment, not an
instruction.

Cheers
