tcl 8.6 [solved]
 
I'm not sure if this is the correct forum in which to enquire about package versions - but I was wondering when we could expect tcl 8.6 to appear in the official slackware packages? I am trying to learn tcl at the moment and I have inferred that 8.6 is an appreciable step forward from 8.5.

Thanks, R.

You could compile yourself which is quite easy (better still using modified slackbuild from official slackware source tree: ftp://ftp.osuosl.org/pub/slackware/s...nt/source/tcl/ )

But you can use a whole bundle with many bateries included from here: http://www.activestate.com/activetcl/downloads

richardh1970, you got it. tcl-8.6 is in -current now.

witek: I could do, but I tend to reserve slackbuilds for packages which are not provided by slackware and wait patiently for the main repository to catch up with new releases.

feyfre: Many thanks! I'll take a look over the weekend.

R.
