Hi there.

To enable Maxima to run TCL scripts by name under
Windows, (as if they were standalone executables), add
the ".tcl" file extension to the file names. This assumes
that ".tcl" script file extensions are registered with
TCL/WISH (the default during installation of TCL 8.4).

In particular, "plotting/mgnuplot"
and "plotting/omplotdata.tcl" need such an extension to
work properly from a text mode Maxima session.

For example, with this fix a text mode maxima plot
command such as:

(C2) plot3d(x^2-y^2,[x,-2,2],[y,-2,2],[grid,100,100]);

will successfully launch the Schelter omplot window.

The mgnuplot script has other problems, but as a first
step the correct file extension is needed.

This change might as well be made on Unix platforms
as well, to avoid having to rename scripts during the
installation of Maxima.

    New Window Maxima installer (CVS 2006-06-16) provides
    omplotdata as standalone executable omplotdata.exe
    which works well for plot2d, plot3d and plotdf if
    plot_format is set to openmath.
