ActiveTcl 8.6.6 lacking documentation on many packages

Posted by arjenmarkus on 2017-03-28 06:41

I have installed the latest ActiveTcl distribution. It comes with a large number of packages, which is very nice, but the documentation for many of these packages is lacking. For instance, there is no documentation to be found on the various modules in Tcllib or Tklib.

That makes it difficult to effectively use these packages.

One of the objectives in the build refactoring was to get away from the practice of including all the docs for everything, regardless of what was actually in the installer. We are not yet to where we are building docs for the exact contents, but the 8.6.6 docs are more coupled to the builder content than past versions, and will improve going forward.

The online docs from 8.6.4 are still useful:
