Comment 1 Eido Inoue 2001-10-17 17:41:01 UTC
Ugh. This creeped back in.

itcl 3.2 does not include the itkwish and itclsh by default-- they've been
depreciated by the itcl author in favor of loading them with a "requires"
through the regular tclsh and wish shells. itkwish and itclsh are included with
3.2 for backwards compatibility with the earlier Red Hat.

Will fix-- but expect (in other words, migrate or plan to migrate to the
solution above if possible) itkwish and itclsh to go away when the next major
(non-dot) release of Red Hat is released and neither shell is included in itcl
3.2 anymore anyway.

Comment 2 Mike McLean 2002-10-25 14:28:40 UTC
The last comment is pretty old... has this been fixed yet, or should it be
marked wontfix?

Comment 4 Jens Petersen 2002-10-27 02:37:54 UTC
Hmm, I believe I already have a fix for this, but I am actually leaning
towards dropping "itclsh" and "itkwish" in the next package release.
Would that hurt people?

Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 2002-10-29 04:03:16 UTC
If they're deprecated upstream, I don't have much problem with removing them.
But if we include them they shouldn't segfault. :)

Comment 6 Mike McLean 2002-10-29 15:14:31 UTC
Since this bug is also in 8.0, I am updating the version (was 7.3).

Comment 10 Jens Petersen 2002-12-10 07:58:54 UTC
You should be able to use itcl and itk from tcl and wish
in package release 77 and later (perhaps even 76).
The source package is tcltk-8.3.5-77.

As indicated above the obsolete itclsh and itkwish aren't
being included any longer.
