Version: 1.8.1 (stable)
Build: 5304 (December 23, 2002)
Requires: Tcl/Tk 8.4+ compiled with threading enabled
Description: TclBridge is a powerful component designed to allow seamless
integration of Tcl/Tk and any ActiveX capable language
(such as Visual Basic 6 and any of the Microsoft .NET
languages). This component is fully multi-threaded
and thread-safe (each interpreter has its own thread).
Additionally, full Tcl/Tk stubs support has been added
(build 5000+). This component should work with any version
of Tcl/Tk 8.3.2 or higher (including TclPro 1.4.1 or
higher). Multiple Tcl interpreters can be easily created,
used, and destroyed. In addition, there is a simple yet
powerful facility that allows Tcl to invoke YOUR custom
COM/ActiveX components. You simply specify the Tcl command
name to add, the instance or progID of the COM object to
call, the method name to call, and the "clientData" (or
cookie) you want to receive when called by the specified
Tcl interpreter. In short, Tcl commands are transparently
mapped to COM method calls that you control in a fully
reentrant, thread-safe manner. Command arguments are
handled automatically either as one long string or as
separate strings (can be toggled dynamically).

Also includes the following:
I. Full Tk support.
II. Stable asynchronous evaluation.
III. Special debugging support, such as the ability to use multiple
debuggers at once, such as Visual Basic and TclPro (a very
powerful combination) and other diagnostic functionality.
IV. TCL2COM, which allows Tcl scripts to utilize any ActiveX
object that supports automation using TclBridge.
V. TCL2ASP, a prototype component which allows easy integration
with Microsoft IIS using TclBridge.
VI. VBS2TCL, a prototype component which allows easy integration
with VBScript. Due to the limitations of VBScript
(MSKB Q197957), TclBridge does not work with VBScript without
VII. Works with Internet Explorer 4, 5, and 6.
