Tcl/Tk distributionsAny (sane) Unix system comes with Tcl and Tk already packaged, check your package manager. On Microsoft® Windows™ you have to install one of the Tcl/Tk distributions; we can recommend two of them:
- An "industry standard" distribution with closed-source packaging (you're prohibited to redistribute the contents of the package or parts of it). Starting with Tcl version 8.5 this distribution seized to be "batteries-included" and it does not include any Tcl extensions. Instead, it includes a tool called teacup which can be used to install Tcl extensions packaged by ActiveState from their on-line repository (called "teapot").
- Completely free "batteries-included" distribution. Very small and contains almost all Tcl extensions which Tkabber can make use of right after the installation (notable omission is tcludp).
