* Programs that run on Linux should generally also run on any Unix system.
Programs using Tcl/Tk are developed on Linux, but also tested on
Windows. Those programs should generally run on any operating system that is
supported by Tcl/Tk. This includes MacOS and most Unix flavors. Tcl/Tk is
part of every serious Linux distribution and in most cases already installed
on commercial Unix systems. So generally only Windows users need to download
Learn more about Tcl/Tk at the Tcl
Developer Xchange or directly download
Tcl/Tk 8.4 for your operating system.
My Tcl/Tk programs are distributed as ZIP files, because they are easier to
unpack on Windows. On Linux use unzip or doubleclick on the file in
your Gnome or KDE filemanager. On Windows I recommend to use PowerArchiver.
Programs using sh are developed on Linux, but should run on any Unix system or
Windows with GNU Win32. sh is the original Unix shell present on every even
very old Unix system.
My Linux programs are distributed as .tar.gz files. Use tar xzvf
archive.tar.gz to untar the gziped archive.
C++ compiler with STL
To compile my Linux C++ programs you need a C++ compiler and the Standard Template Library.
Theses packages are normally called gcc and libstdc++.
If you successfully use one of the programs on an operating system that is not
in the list, please
, so I can include your OS in the above table.
