cd /data/tmp curl http://www.rkeene.org/devel/kitcreator/kitbuild/nightly/tclkit-8.6.0-android-arm-notk-xcompile > tclkit chmod 755 tclkit TMPDIR=~/tmp; export TMPDIR ./tclkit
If you have a rooted phone, and you want get tcl as interpreter from terminal you can also install widely or just update it. Insted of use /data/local/tmp folder, you can instal in /system/bin folder (this is the folder on my android 2.3.3).To accomplish that task you will need to have installed BusyBox and use su command.To get access to /system folder you have to mount /system in reade-write mode. To do that, you have to find mounting point (mount command) and remount it; then coping tclkit, chmod it 555, and remount /system in read-only mode.To make all these steps simplier, i make a little code. I dont cover responsibility for it. I suggest you to check it manually steps per steps if it does all stuff rigth at first running.Place this script in the same folder of your new tclkit for android and edit firsts lines with: your system path, your bin path, new tclkit name (ex. tclkit863) and old one (ex. tclkit861).Run su to gain root access, and sh tclkit.sh where file tclkit.sh is the name of this script, also hosted here.

MJ For using Android as a unixy box, you could check Terminal IDE  it allows you to run executables without need to root. It also has vi and other tools installed so you can pretty much work from you Android device.RS 2013-10-27 - Indeed. I have Terminal IDE on tablet and phone. Tclkits run with no trouble in its environment (sqlite can't be loaded, though). The recommended editor is vim (enhanced to a tiny IDE for Java development), vi comes with busybox, but nano is also there (which I prefer). Best feature for me at the moment is telnetd, so I can use my netbook's screen and keyboard to login to the little devices, via WiFi.Now if we had Tk for Android...
