    Hi, Just discovered Visual TCL (yesterday!! and installed it on my ubuntu machine); I've been programming TCL for many years and just stumbled upon vTCL. I would like to know how many others are using it, so please chime in with maybe a blurb about the operating system you are currently running it on.

      I am a Vtcl user for about a year now. I am running it on Windows 2000, Windows XP and Ubuntu 7.04.
      This tool is *very* promising, although plagued by some minor bugs here and there.
      Unfortunately, project activity and support is poor these days, and these bugs remain.

      I am working through all the bugs I can. If you see some that are not in the tracker let me know.

      this thread is a bit old but I'd like just to let you know that I've been using vtcl since june 98 to make a frontend for a unix nlp tool.
      Everytime I have to make a rapid prototype for something which have to be used by non programmer, i use vtcl.

      It's such a pity it can't generate java code or perl-tk colde ;(

      long lives vtcl :)

      Apparently a LOT of people do use vTcl... but you wouldn't know it based on how many people have posted in this section.

      vTcl is awesome!!

      I just wish there was more documentation.

      What would be nice is something that clearly explains what the various vTcl code does.

      I'm using it under OpenVMS
      VTCL is not working correctly with 8.5.x branch

      I just experienced that under FreeBSD myself (next to OpenVMS, the second greatest OS on the planet ;-)).  The cure is to edit lib/tkcon.tcl to remove the "-exact" requirement for $tcl_version.

        This does not work. i now have the error:
        bad variable name "vTcl(w,opt,-background)": upvar won't create a scalar variable that looks like an array element
        when i start with a Toplevel-Window.

    …been using vtcl since 1998. keep maintaining and make an effort to include vtcl in the mainstream debian and ubuntu apt packages. VTcl is a worthy applicaion.
