XOTclIDE is supplied in three versions, either as a set of Tcl/XOTcl scripts (packages), or as a Starpack or Tclkit that needs no further installation. The Starpack version is available only for Windows. The Tclkit version runs on both Windows and Intel Linux.
To run the script version you need an installed Tcl with the Tk and XOTcl extensions. XOTclIDE can run anywhere Tcl/XOTcl runs but it has been tested only for Linux (RedHat) and Windows. Tcl(Tk) and XOTcl can be obtained free from the Internet - see Chapter 5, Additional Information. Almost all Linux distributions offer Tcl and Tk as base packages, but often in the older 8.3 version. For Linux and Windows, XOTcl must be installed separately. To use Version Control you need in addition a relational database manager (SQL-Database) and the proper Tcl interface to it (see the section called “Version Control System”). I suggest the following infrastructure.
Linux as platform
Tcl and Tk (required)
XOTcl Extension (required)
MySQL Database (required for version control)
mysqltcl - MySQL Tcl interface (required for version control)
