Description  edit

Compiler provieds a GUI for easy access to the tools features. It is also integrated with TclApp, the starkit-based tool for wrapping and rapid and easy deployment.

The files generated by this tool can be loaded by the package tbcload.

Features include:

  • Compile scripts independently of execution, then store for loading and executing when you need them.
  • Distribute bytecode files instead of source code to protect your intellectual property.
  • Simplify support by distributing code that cannot be modified by users.
  • Use with TclApp to create bundled applications that don't require special installation.
