Current Maintainer
Bob Daly

There are other interfaces for tcl that have been developed for use with EPICS in addition to the software below. One such is a project at SourceForge called epicstcl which comes from the NSCL at Michican State University.

There are many places on the web for tcl/tk resources, for example www.tcl.tk/.

Software Download

The following tar file contains source code only (no binaries), and was compressed using gnuzip.

Required Software

caTCL requires that the X11, Tk/Tcl, DP, and BLT header files and libraries be available and that the X11, TK, TCL, and BLT settings in CONFIG_SITE.<host_arch> be set correctly.

Since caTCL uses header files and/or libraries from the following extensions, it is necessary that they be downloaded and built first.
