oh, am I?  I can certainly understand your statement, but
you know what I was doing, trying to compile some piece of C
agianst a shared object file I paid money for to be allowed to use it.
All the information I used to do this was publicly available to me
as a customer, namely the reference manual, and a bit of common sense
knowledge about C data-types.
I think you are over-reacting here.  BTW, quite exactly the same is
done in tcleci.cpp, is it more idiological there?

OK, I always thought interaction with users is a important part
of being the maintainer of a open source project.  But your
view may vary, it's your choice.

P.S.: Did anyone else manage to get the software-dtk-1.0 tarball
working?  If yes, please mail me, I'd like to talk to you about
which versions of libraries you're running...  I even tried to relink
tcldtk.o against libtcl8.3 in case there was any problem, but no go.
