critcl_sources - Critcl - How To Get The Sources

Table Of Contents


C Runtime In Tcl, or CriTcl , is a system for compiling C code embedded in Tcl on the fly and either loading the resulting objects into Tcl for immediate use or packaging them for distribution. Use CriTcl to improve performance by rewriting in C those routines that are performance bottlenecks.

The audience of this document is anyone wishing to either have just a look at Critcl's source code, or build the packages, or to extend and modify them.

For builders and developers we additionally provide

  1. Critcl - License.

  2. Critcl - The Installer's Guide.

  3. Critcl - The Developer's Guide.


Source Location

The official repository for Critcl can be found at http://andreas-kupries.github.io/critcl


Assuming that you simply wish to look at the sources, or build a specific revision, the easiest way of retrieving it is to:

  1. Go to this site.

  2. Follow the 'Fork me on Github' link (top-right corner) to the project sources.

  3. Choose the revision under the Commits panel you wish to have and

  4. follow its 'Browse code' link to its detailed information page.

  5. On that page, choose either the "ZIP" link to get a copy of this revision as a Zip archive.

Source Code Management

For the curious (or a developer-to-be), the sources are managed by the Git SCM. Binaries for popular platforms can be found directly at its download page.

With that tool available the full history can be retrieved via:

    git clone http://github.com/andreas-kupries/critcl
    cd critcl

to get a checkout of the head of the trunk and move into it for browsing, editing, etc.
