TCL/TK in Visual Studio

    Question

  • I currently have Microsoft Visual Studio 2012 installed. I would like to ask if it is possible to compile and run TCL/TK code within the IDE? I have seen some resources online that seem to indicate that it could be possible (See http://p-nand-q.com/programming/windows/building_tcltk_86_with_visual_studio_2013.html) but I can't find anything for Visual Studio 2012.

  • There is a way to compile tck code in VS, and you need  have dll of tcl and add it to VC++ directories.

    What I got below is from tcl offical web, I also edited based on the new features of Visaul Studio, you could get more information here:

    https://wiki.tcl-lang.org/19919

    • File -> new project -> name: Foo -> win32 console application -> Next -> dll
    • In the solution explorer : Project name -> Properties -> VC++ Directories -> Include Directories -> added C:\Tcl\include
    • Library directories -> C:\Tcl\lib
    • C/C++ -> precompiled headers -> Not Using Precompiled Headers
    • Linker -> Input -> Additional Dependencies -> added c:\tcl\lib\tclstub84.lib

    And I found tcl has its own forum, you also could get more help from there.
