Purpose: to discuss on what platforms the specific 8.5 version of Tcl runs, and point to pages that discuss particular issues relating to the various operating systems.
The On What Platforms Does Tcl Run page has become quite old, outdated and cluttered with a messy mix of assorted information that only applies to older versions of Tcl. Some of it is dubious/unverified. Many topics of this wiki are broken into many pages, one for each historical version of Tcl. That system provides for better focus and organization of the data in certain cases.
Tcl 8.5 runs on the following platforms:
Tk 8.5 may not run on some of the above platforms. (Does that warrant a separate page for Tk?)
Most current Linux distributions come with Tcl and Tk as installable packages, and sources should compile just fine. Binaries can be found at places like ActiveTcl as well as the various distro repositories.
If you can confirm that Tcl/Tk 8.5 works on any platform not included in this page, please update the info.
Any other good place for downloading Tcl/Tk 8.5?
