Build Error: TclTk 0.75 for Perl 5.28.1 on Windows

Looking for help with this package that is failing to build in my project.

Runtime Details

  • ActiveState
  • Language - perl 5.28.1
  • Platform - Windows

Failing Packages

  • TclTk 0.75

When you are looking for Tcl::Tk you will find two packages with almost identical descriptions. One hase version 1.29 and another one 0.75. 1.29 depends on Tcl 1.11 and higher, 0.75 just builds with error. I guess that 0.75 is wrong package.

HI @smosin ,
Thanks for posting!
The team will advise accordingly.

Tcltk is the right package. The other one is a collection of demos and delivers no functionality.

Is TclTk what you want though? That’s a module that isn’t often used on it’s own. PerlTk or Tkx would be far more common. FWIW, Tkx should import both the Perl wrapper for Tcl (TclTk) and the Tcl library that is needed to run it with.
