    Hi,
    As stated in the README file of vtcl for installation on Linux, I tried to run ./configure script in order to find the best possible wish version. However, I am baffled by the error message I get:
    [root@windbag/vtcl-1.6.1a1]# ./configure
    : bad interpreter : No such file or directory

    Is there any other way of running ./configure script, what am I doing wrong?
    Tnx

      I don't have access to a linux system and I haven't yet run vTcl on one,
      but if I run the script in Windows under MSYS it looks like it works.
      You can try to check if you have /bin/sh and if configure file is set as an
      executable (type "chmod +x configure" to make it executable). Check also if
      your script has DOS line endings (convert it to unix with "dos2unix configure").

      Hi.

      You have to do a "do2unix" to all your tcl-scripts that came with the package.

      for Example:
      > dos2unix ./configure.tcl
