Tcl/Tk 8.0 interface to MySQL ============================= This is a rewrite of a patched version of Hakan Soderlund's msqltcl-1.50. I removed all support for older versions of Tcl. If you are going to use older versions of Tcl, the patch (for msqltcl) found at http://www.tcx.se will do the job for you. The interface can be used as tcl package that is dynamically linked shared library. For copyright and licensing information, look in the README-msqltcl file. The same condition holds, but don't forget to mention me ;) Compilation =========== The system has been compiled on - SunOS 5.5.1 sparc - SunOS 5.6 sparc - Linux 2.0.32 i586 The settings for these systems are all in the Makefile. Take a look at the paths at the beginning, and adjust them for your system. The code is written in "close-to-ansi-c", so it should be straight forward to compile the static version. It could however be troublesome to compile the dynamic library, because of the anti-standard of shared libraries... :( Some experiments with the flags and paths might just do the trick! Set the SHARED variable to compile the shared library. The PLATFORM variable should be set to something similar to `uname -prs | sed 's/ /-/g'` for your system. If there are no preset configuration for your system, it is time to do some testing ;) Please report any successful compilations under new configurations to me, so that I can rewrite the makefile. New features ============ The package is already full of nice features. I added the possibility to set user and password at connection time and support for all(?) MySQL types in mysqlcol. However, I would recommend using the "SHOW COLUMNS..." command for new code. The port can (as always) be set using an environment variable (see MySQL documentation.) Use and abuse this software as much as you want as long as you follow the license agreement in the README-msqltcl file. Tobias Ritzau VERSION 2.0 Version 2.0 supports all Tcl8.0 features, uni-code strings and is faster than old versions.
