tkisem for DOS
the tkisem Home Page
tkisem finally works under Windows '95!
Here's what you need to do (Eventually, I'll build something
that does an "official" installation. For now, you get the joy of
touching lots of files.):
- Make sure you have installed wish4.1. To
obtain wish4.1, see the Tcl/Tk Home Page.
Actually, it doesn't appear that you can get version 4.1
through the Web pages (at least, I can't find it anymore).
But, luckily version 4.1 is still available through anonymous
One of these days, I'll get around to making a tkisem.dll that works
with wish 4.2.
- ftp to ftp.scriptics.com
- cd to pub/tcl/tcl7_5
- get win41p1.exe
- Pick a directory where you will put the files associated
with tkisem. (For Windows '95, I suggest \Program
- Get the files needed for tkisem (these files should go in the
directory selected in the previous step):
the Tcl/Tk script for tkisem.
the dynamic load library for DOS (new as of 10/14/96)
the ROM code for tkisem (this file is executed whenever
tkisem is started, it provides basic trap handlers.)
the assembler source for isem_rom.
the help file for tkisem.
- Edit the tkisem file to reflect the
locations of these files. (Make sure that you use '/' and not
'\' in the path name.)
- To run tkisem under Windows '95, run wish41 with the
pathname of tkisem as an argument (you can also install a shortcut). For Windows 3.1, see
how they run the widget tour for Tcl/Tk.
- Get executable files for the assembler and linker (these
files should go into a directory that is mentioned in your DOS
Warning: isem-ld and isem-nm were written in
a couple of days (they were not derived from the GNU binutils
distributions). They should be considered "alpha" software.
The versions above are current as of 10/14/96.
