In understanding Starkit some questions and observations arise as to how starkits work.
What *is* [package starkit]? ... what's the boot sequence?
= Phase 0: before main.tcl is sourced =
Invocation of a starkit causes a file main.tcl to be sourced. What environment exists at this point in the boot sequence?
package starkit is there by the time main.tcl runs - it's provided by the binary. What facilities does it provide?
= Phase 1: main.tcl runs =
Invoking [package require starkit] from within main.tcl causes some processing to occur - what processing? What environmental impact does this processing have? What facilities are available as a result of this processing?
What environment does [package starkit] establish, what facilities does it provides, and what environmental assumptions it makes in providing those facilities.
= Phase 2: the application runs =
What environmental assumptions should an application make?
