-ActiveTcl is ActiveState's quality-assured distribution of Tcl.
-# see <>
-# <>
-If you want to use ActiveTcl binary package as the Tcl/Tk libraries,
-please use the following configure options.
- --with-tcl-dir=<ActiveTcl_root>
- --with-tk-dir=<ActiveTcl_root>
-And use the followings if you need.
- --with-tcllib=<libname>
- --with-tklib=<libname>
- --enable-tcltk-stubs
-For example, when you install ActiveTcl-8.4.x to '/usr/local/ActiveTcl',
- configure --with-tcl-dir=/usr/local/ActiveTcl/ \
- --with-tk-dir=/usr/local/ActiveTcl/ \
- --with-tcllib=tclstub8.4 \
- --with-tklib=tkstub8.4 \
- --enable-tcltk-stubs
-It depends on your environment that you have to add the directory of
-ActiveTcl's libraries to your library path when execute Ruby/Tk.
-One of the way is to add entries to TCLLIBPATH environment variable,
-and one of the others add to LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable
-Probably, using TCLLIBPATH is better. The value is appended at the
-head of Tcl's 'auto_path' variable. You can see the value of the
-variable by using 'Tk::AUTO_PATH.value' or 'Tk::AUTO_PATH.list'.
-For example, on Linux, one of the ways is to use LD_LIBRARY_PATH
-environment variable.
- [bash]$ LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/ActiveTcl/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH \
- ruby your-Ruby/Tk-script
- [bash]$ LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/ActiveTcl/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH irb
-Based on it, the Tcl interpreter changes auto_path variable's value.
-Then, you'll be able to use Tcl/Tk extension libraries included in the
-ActiveTcl package (e.g. call TkPackage.require('BWidget'), and then,
-use functions/widgets of BWidget extention).
