Tcl/Tk 8.3.3 binary distribution for Windows NT on Alpha
contains a binary distribution of Tcl/Tk 8.3.3
compiled with Microsoft Visual C++ 6.0 for Windows NT
running on a Compaq/Digital Alpha system.
The Tcl and Tk libraries in this distribution have been built
using the /LINK50COMPAT option to the MSVC++ linker,
so they should be able to be linked into programs compiled
with either version 5.x or 6.x of the MSVC++ compiler.
That's what we think anyway; we don't have a 5.x compiler
around to check.
- Select a directory on your system in which to install Tcl/Tk (for
example, C:\Program Files). Unzip the file tcltk833-alphant.zip in
that directory, taking care to preserve directory structure. A
subdirectory 'Tcl' is generated containing the Tcl/Tk package. It
also contains a ReadMeFirst.txt file with these instructions.
- In the subdirectory 'Tcl', type:
This will set up file extension associations just as the installer
program from Ajuba did for Windows installations on Intel platforms.
- If you decide to uninstall this distribution of Tcl/Tk, first run
the uninstall script from the 'Tcl' directory:
This will clean up the file association changes.
Then delete this directory and all its contents.
Other Tcl/Tk binary distributions for Windows NT on Alpha
Binary distributions of some older Tcl/Tk releases are also available:
These binary distributions were compiled with Microsoft Visual C++ 4.0.
For those on the ``bleeding edge'', here is a binary distribution
of Tcl/Tk 8.4a2 compiled with Microsoft Visual C++ 6.0 for
Alpha-NT systems using the /LINK50COMPAT option.
