Bindings to Tcl/Tk for the D programming language
To use this package, run the following command in your project's root directory:
#tcltk Bindings to Tcl/Tk for the D programming language
Tcl/Tk v8.6.1 is tagged supported in the master branch. Tcl/Tl v8.5.11 support is available via a tag.
Tcltk requires other D source libraries to correctly use and link against pre-existing C libraries. The source dependencies are as follows:
- https://github.com/nomad-software/x11 (Linux only)
Dub handles these automatically and during a build acquires them. While building, the tcltk repository is configured to link against the required Tcl/Tk libraries, hence they need to be installed for the application to function.
Version 8.6.1 of the Tcl/Tk libraries or greater is required to be installed.
To avoid relying on a Tcl installation and to create fully independant
programs, copy the DLL's and the initialization script library directory into
the root of the finished application. These files can be conveniently found in
dist folder within this repository. Your finished application's directory
would then look something like this:
project ├── app.exe ├── tcl86.dll ├── tk86.dll └── library └── *.tcl files
On Linux and Mac OSX things are a little easier as both operating systems have Tcl/Tk installed by default. If however they do not have the latest version, the libraries can be updated via their respective package managers. The linked libraries are libtcl and libtk.
