Hello *,

A deprecated interp->result has finally disappeared in tcl-8.6, one has to use Tcl_GetStringResult(interp) instead. gcl-2.6.10 (as well as all earlier versions) don't compile with tcl-8.6 or later. The attached patch to tkMain.c fixes the problem (I've already sent it to the list in March 2013, but it is not yet included).

I've committed gcl-2.6.10 ebuild to Gentoo, largely based on the fedora srpm by Jerry James (thanks!). But this patch is also absent in fedora. Does fedora use a very old tcl?

The current stable version, Fedora 20, has tcl 8.5.14.  The development version, Rawhide, currently has 8.5.15, but see:


Thanks for the patch!  Regards,
Jerry James
