How do you install the tcl.tar.gz?

Post by Suratka »

Hello everyone. a trivial question for many of you who are super savvy.

As for the normal tcls I learned to install them, one thing I never understood is how do you install the tc ending with "tar.gz" ??
Thanks: D

Where is it?

Post by Suratka »

yes I know and I also know how to extract etc ..
I just don't understand where and how to install in eggdrop? in which directory of the eggdrop should I unzip and install it?
For example, in this case it is a trivia.

When you get a tar.gz file (or tgz), the best way is to copy it in your eggdrop/scripts/ directory and uncompress from it.
If the creator made a good job, it's all right. If he added the initial directory, then move everything.

Example: the dummy.tgz file containes dummy/dummy.tcl and dummy/dummy.conf.
When you extract, you obtain scripts/dummy/dummy.tcl and scripts/dummy/dummy.conf.
Just do (from scripts/ directory):

Code: Select all

mv dummy/* ./
rm -rf dummy/
P.S.: small advisory: learn the linux basics, it could really help.

Are you speaking about https://docs.eggheads.org/install/readm ... requisites ?
You need the following packages: tcl, tcl-dev, tcllib.
If you want ssl support, you also need openssl, libssl-dev, tcl-tls

That's right, i'm just sharing my opinion that the previous help link is more structure by starting off with the pre-requisites before moving on to the setup :D
