It's useful to be able to make a checkout of the current Tcl sources with their “standard batteries” included. Here's how to do that.

TIP 386

Clone the Repositories  edit

in your home directory…
fossil clone http://core.tcl.tk/tcl/ tcl.fossil
fossil clone http://core.tcl.tk/itcl/ itcl.fossil
fossil clone http://core.tcl.tk/tclconfig/ tclconfig.fossil
fossil clone http://core.tcl.tk/thread/ thread.fossil

or with user name and password:
% fossil clone https://username:[email protected]/tcl tcl.fossil

Construct the Checkout  edit

Instructions for Unix (assuming you develop in ~/tcl)
mkdir ~/tcl
cd ~/tcl
fossil open ~/tcl.fossil trunk
mv _FOSSIL_ .fos
cd pkgs
mkdir itcl
mkdir thread
cd itcl
fossil open --nested ~/itcl.fossil trunk
mv _FOSSIL_ .fos
mkdir tclconfig
cd tclconfig
fossil open --nested ~/tclconfig.fossil trunk
mv _FOSSIL_ .fos
cd ../../thread
fossil open --nested ~/thread.fossil trunk
mv _FOSSIL_ .fos
mkdir tclconfig
cd tclconfig
fossil open --nested ~/tclconfig.fossil trunk
mv _FOSSIL_ .fos

Build the Checkout  edit

Assuming you want your build in /tmp/tcl8.6; adjust to taste…
cd ~/tcl/unix
`pwd`/configure --prefix=/tmp/tcl8.6
make

Then run the tests...
make test

And install so you can try running real code
make install
/tmp/tcl8.6/bin/tclsh8.6

Change password on core.tcl.tk  edit
