This is an excellent widget set for Tcl which retains much of the Tk syntax, but uses curses to render the widgets in a character-cell terminal instead of X and a graphical display.
1. Type "./configure". This runs a configuration script made by GNU autoconf, which configures Ck for your system and creates a Makefile. The configure script allows you to customize the configuration to your local needs; for details how to do this, type "./configure --help" or refer to the autoconf documentation (not included here).
The following special switches are supported by "configure":
--enable-shared If this switch is specified Ck will compile itself as a shared library if configure can figure out how to do this on this platform.
--with-tcl Specifies the directory containing the Tcl binaries and Tcl's platform-dependent configuration information. By default the Tcl distribution is assumed to be in "../../tcl8.0".
2. Type "make". This will create a library called "libck.a" or "libck8.0.so" and an interpreter application called "cwsh" that allows you to type Tcl commands interactively or execute scripts.
3. Type "make install" to install Ck's binaries, script files, and man pages in standard places. You'll need write permission on the install directories to do this. If you plan to install the libraries, executables, and script files whitout documentation, use "make install-binaries" and "make install-libraries".
4. Now you should be able to execute "cwsh". However, if you haven't installed Ck then you'll need to set the CK_LIBRARY environment variable to hold the full path name of the "library" subdirectory. If Ck has been built as shared library, you have to set the LD_LIBRARY_PATH to include the directory where "libck8.0.so" resides.
So far, Ck8.0 has been successfully tested on various Linux distributions, on FreeBSD 3.3 with manually adapted Makefile, and on Windows NT 4.0 with a modified PDCURSES library. The Ck8.0 source tree should be able to be combined with Tcl7.4, 7.5, 7.6, and 8.0. Older version of Ck (which use Tcl7.4 or Tcl7.5) are in use for several years on HP-UX, AIX, and DEC Unix.
