tcl/tk on Slackware 9.0
I need to write a simple "cash register" program that would save "receipts" as small text files. At first, I though of doing this in BASH using Dialog that comes intalled with Slackware 9.0. Then I figured it might be wiser to do it in python.
I'm quite new to Slackware and to Linux as a whole. One of the more interesting (pleasant) experiences I've had using Slackware 9.0 is that whenever I wanted to poke around with something like Apache or MySQL or PHP, lo-and-behold it's already installed. I just need to alter some configuration files to get things rolling.
Now, I know python and tcl are installed. I get a specific prompt when typing either at CLI. Tk however, does not seem to be installed. I downloaded some tk demos and they crashed looking for wish4.1. After an slocate wish, nothing turned up.
Do I need to install tk? There is an entry for it under /usr/doc so I'm not entirely sure how to proceed.
