Oh, I think we are getting away.


I don't need a compiled release. Instead I compile it myself and

provide the binaries for free.


The simulator is end of life. I just use the machine to compile tcl

and extensions.


If I find problems I try to fix it or ask for advice. At least 8.6

is still in beta. And, yes I have to patch 8.5 still today for

the IRIX mkstemp() problem.


Let's stop here.
