Version 4 of base-tcl

Updated 2007-08-20 12:59:44 by LV

ActiveTcl uses the term base-tcl in a fashion similar to tclkit.

A base-tcl interpreter is a stand alone, Tcl only, interpreter which includes the following package names:

So there are a number of differences in terms of what packages one will find by default in a base-tcl.

The base-tcl and base-tk, just like the tclsh that comes as part of ActiveTcl, include an array which provides build information.

 parray ::activestate::ActiveTcl

Anyone have information on other differences? One thing to notice is that Tk isn't in the list. For that package, check on base-tk, which is another application in ActiveTcl.

Another difference is that itcl is missing. That means there will be some starkits which won't run with the base-tcl alone.
