New wish and tickle.

August 21, 2007

Two symbolic links make all the difference:

: pearson FSS 86 $; ls -l /usr/bin/tclsh /usr/bin/wish 
lrwxrwxrwx   1 root     root           8 Aug 21 14:19 /usr/bin/tclsh -> tclsh8.4 
lrwxrwxrwx   1 root     root           7 Aug 21 14:19 /usr/bin/wish -> wish8.4 : 
pearson FSS 87 $;

This came to my notice as a script have for prompting for my ssh pass phrase via ssh-add stopped working after the upgrade to build 71 as it had wish8.3 hard coded into it.

So now you can just call “wish” or “tclsh” with the default path and things will work. What is more since the tcl version is now 8.4 this is large file aware so my zfs_version tlc script, which I have upgraded to use /usr/bin/tclsh now works even if the file in question is greater than 2Gb.
