Re: tcl under Solaris



I looked a little more into this.
1) you have the tcl tk packages that you need.
2) On some solaris systems the dtk-exp script fails to
recognize solaris correctly.
The fix (documented in dtk-exp) is to set the environment
variable DTK_OS (all caps)
to solaris (all lowr case).

3) the commands tts_speak and tts_stop were renamed to
shorter one letter versions in 8.0
they are called "q" and "s".
On solaris after setting DTK_OS to solairs in your shell,
launch dtk-exp and do the test as follows:
q {this is a test. }; d
this should speak the string.
then type s for stop and make sure you see the tcl prompt.
