        I've placed the single line changes that I made to build
Tcl and Tk under Linux in
I've already sent these changes to Professor Ousterhout (the author
of Tcl and Tk).

1. Plans for Tcl/Tk8.4 version of tksh (ksh93 + Tcl/Tk)?

# I was forwarded your posting to comp.lang.tcl.
# After version 7.6 came out, I stopped working on tksh (at that
# point, tcl was changing so quickly I got frustrated trying to
# keeping up).  However, now that ksh and tksh are open-source, there
# seems to be renewed interest.  I recently started working at AT&T so
# I have a little extra time to work on it.  I am going to look at 8.4
# and see how much work would be required.  If it's a lot, I would
# need contributions from others to complete it.

FYI. I'm posting this slighly reformatted reply that I received from
Jeff Korn with his permission. Thanks Jeff.
