Ubuntu-based batteries-included Tcl for Docker

This contains most packages necessary for running Tcl 8.6 applications. It is based on an installation of the packages available in Ubuntu. tclreadline is enabled by default for the root user in the container so you will have a decent prompt at the command line.

Building and Running

To build, simply write:

docker build -t efrecon/tcl .

To run and get an interactive Tcl prompt:

docker run -it --rm efrecon/tcl 

Running your own scripts

This image exports /opt/tcl as a volume and arranges to give that directory and its sub-directory lib as additional locations when looking for packages. This means that you should be able to mount local directories onto /opt/tcl to run your own code within the container.

Additionally, the image exports /opt/data to place random data that you might wish to access from within the container.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
