Projects / eltclsh


eltclsh (editline Tcl shell) is an interactive shell for the Tcl programming language. It provides command line editing, history browsing, and variables and command completion thanks to editline features. The completion engine is programmable in a way similar to tcsh, and comes with built in completion for the entire Tcl language by default. The package also provides elwish, an interactive interpreter for the Tk toolkit. You need the editline library in order to compile eltclsh.
