To compile 'tcltklib', you must have Tcl/Tk libraries on your environment.
Although 'extconf.rb' script searches Tcl/Tk libraries and header files,
sometimes fails to find them. And then, 'tcltklib' cannot be compiled. If
Tcl/Tk libraries or header files are installed but are not found, you can
give the information by arguments of the 'configure' script. Please give
some or all of the following options.
--with-tcltkversion=<version>
force version of Tcl/Tk libaray
(e.g. libtcl8.4g.so ==> --with-tcltkversion=8.4g)
--with-tcllib=<libname> (e.g. libtcl8.4.so ==> --with-tcllib=tcl8.4)
--with-tklib=<libname> (e.g. libtk8.4.so ==> --with-tklib=tk8.4)
--enable-tcltk-stubs (if you force to enable stubs)
--with-tcl-dir=<path>
equal to "--with-tcl-include=<path>/include --with-tcl-lib=<path>/lib"
--with-tk-dir=<path>
equal to "--with-tk-include=<path>/include --with-tk-lib=<path>/lib"
--with-tcl-include=<dir> the directry contains 'tcl.h'
--with-tk-include=<dir> the directry contains 'tk.h'
--with-tcl-lib=<dir> the directry contains 'libtcl<version>.so'
--with-tk-lib=<dir> the directry contains 'libtk<version>.so'
--enable-mac-tcltk-framework (MacOS X) use Tcl/Tk framework
(Obsolete. Please use '--enable-tcltk-framework'.)
--enable-tcltk-framework use Tcl/Tk framework
--with-tcltk-framework=<dir> the directory contains Tcl/Tk framework;
"<dir>/Tcl.framework" and "<dir>/Tk.framework".
When this option is given, it is assumed that
--enable-tcltk-framework option is given also.
--with-tcl-framework-header=<dir>
Tcl framework headers directory
(e.g. "/Library/Frameworks/Tcl.framework/Headers")
--with-tk-framework-header=<dir>
Tk framework headers directory
(e.g. "/Library/Frameworks/Tk.framework/Headers")
--with-X11 / --without-X11 use / not use the X Window System
--with-X11-dir=<path>
equal to "--with-X11-include=<path>/include --with-X11-lib=<path>/lib"
--with-X11-include=<dir> the directry contais X11 header files
--with-X11-lib=<dir> the directry contais X11 libraries
If you forgot to give the options when do 'configure' on toplevel
directry of Ruby sources, please try something like as the followings.
$ cd ext/tcltklib
$ rm Makefile
$ CONFIGURE_ARGS='--with-tcl-include=/usr/local/include/tcl8.4/ --with-tcllib=tcl8.4 --with-tklib=tk8.4' ruby extconf.rb
*** ATTENTION ***
When your Tcl/Tk libraries are compiled with "pthread support",
Ruby/Tk may cause "Hang-up" or "Segmentation Fault" frequently.
If you have such a trouble, please try to use the '--enable-pthread'
option of the 'configure' command and re-compile Ruby sources.
It may help you to avoid this trouble. The following configure
options may be useful.
--enable-tcl-thread/--disable-tcl-thread
--with-tclConfig-file=<path of 'tclConfig.sh'>
It is not need that 'tclConfig.sh' is a normal Tcl/Tk's tclConfig.sh.
But the file is expected to include the line "TCL_THREADS=0" or "...=1".
When no "TCL_THREADS=?" line, if Tcl version is 7.x or 8.0 which is
given by "TCL_MAJOR_VERSION=?" line and "TCL_MINOR_VERSION=?" line,
then --disable-tcl-thread is expected. Else, ignore the 'tclConfig.sh'.
If --enable-tcl-thread or --disable-tcl-thread option is given, then
--with-tclConfig-file option is ignored.
