Newbie needs Help compiling TCL

Newbie needs Help compiling TCL

Newbie needs Help compiling TCL

Hello World,
my problem is, that i have downloaded a program in TCL, and i don't know, how to execute it.
Until now, i have never heard of TCL - i literally stand in the forest and don't know, which way to go.

I run on Win10 and i'd like to run this little script. Until now, all my attempts failed.
I would really appreciate every help with it.

The script i am talking about is here:

The Package contains two exe files and one TCL script.

Please help me - i am not one of those programmer- or code-guys. I do analog electronics engineering. That's enough for me.
Many Thanks in Advance.

To run the Tcl script you need to install Tcl for windows, for example Active Tcl

It seems to work somehow for now. I simply chose "open with" and chose wishtcl.

Many thanks for your reply.

RE: Newbie needs Help compiling TCL

I do quite a bit of scripting here at work to automate things, and find it much easier to just compile the code into windows executables, that way I don't have to concern myself if the person who'll be running the script has TCL installed, which by default, they won't.

RE: Newbie needs Help compiling TCL

If it is a script that does not use tkinter, you can use tclsh or wish. If it uses tkinter, use wish, especially if the script does not have a use tkinter statement.
