This directory contains the sources and documentation for tclreadline,
which builds a connection between tcl and the gnu readline.
The information here corresponds to release 0.7 (initial developers release).
The "doc" subdirectory in this release contains the reference manual entries
for tclreadline. If you only want to use tclreadline as a tool for interactive
script development, you don't have to read this manual page at all. Simply
change your .tclshrc according to the next section.
3. Compiling and installing tclreadline
This release will probably only build under UNIX (Linux).
Before trying to compile tclreadline you should do the following things:
(a) Make sure you have tcl 8.0 or higher. I've tested tclreadline
with tcl 8.0.3 and 8.0.4. tclreadline relies on a proper tcl
It uses the tclConfig.sh file, which should reside somewhere
in /usr/local/lib/ or /usr/local/lib/tcl8.0/...
