I emailed Jeff Hobbes, the author of tkconsole, and he was unaware of any
problems with tkconsole, and in fact has confirmed that tkconsole works
fine on Windows and Solaris.
So it seems more likely there is some sort of Tcl pecularity either on
your system or in general on the particular platform and version of
1. Open a regular xterm window.
2. Start tclsh
3. type the following
puts [gets stdin]
4. type in some text and press return.
5. You should see this:
% puts [gets stdin]
this is a test
this is a test
If you don't, then there is a more fundamental problem with the Tcl
you are using . If it does work, then we should try some more experiments
to see if we can narrow down the problems.

Even if explicitly stated to the contrary, nothing in this posting should

I thought we have already established that
- Current TkConsole works fine.
- Running tclsh or Wish from a MacOSX Terminal works fine.
- The problem occurs with the GUI console on Mac OS X and Windows as
included in the current distributions of Wish.
I can re-check this, if necessary, but I'm pretty sure that's the
state of things.
