Newie question re. ActiveTcl8.6.0.0b8 on Mac

Posted by jon_k on 2012-12-21 06:47

Hi,

I've just downloaded and installed ActiveTcl8.6.0.0b8.296238-macosx10.5-i386-x86_64-threaded.dmg on my Mac, but I have trouble figuring out how to use it. I've found the folder ActiveState ActiveTcl with the tclvfse.app in it, but that app just looks like a stupid file browser.
If I execute 'tclsh' from my Terminal and does a 'puts $tcl_version', then I get 8.5, which obviously is the version I had before I installed ActiveTcl8.6.0.0b8. Where can I find the hidden goodies of ActiveTcl?

/Jon

Tclvfse is not just a file browser, but you won't notice what it can really do until you start working with starkits.
