Hi all, Hi Markus,
the Active State tcl/tk will not get you any further. I am a bit tired
of reiterating the problem:
- the cygwin wish does not understand the cygwin paths. Besides that
there are other problems, e. g. hardcoded xterm references everywhere,
/dev/null, piping not fully working with cygwin.
- the Active State tcl/tk does not know anything about cygwin, paths do
not work, etc. Would require a full rewrite of tcltkgrass to get it
- my "xtcltk" distribution works quite well with the StarNet XWin
Server, its a bit slow. With the XFree86 for cygwin it is unbearable
slow and there are some problems with the Server (no localized keyboards
by default, 3 buttons mice not emulated with 2 buttons by default etc.).
My personal opinion is that the best route to follow would be a cygwin
wish shell which understands the cygwin paths and
adaption/conditionalization of some windows-only things. Its IMHO very
weird that the cygwin wish does not understand the cygwin paths.
