tcl 4.3
« on: March 02, 2012, 08:13:47 AM »
This new 4.3 tcl version

it says it has a new dynamic method of loading and unloading APPS from itself at runtime.

Is this a kind of method of re-claiming the ram should you unload some app....thus
gaining back the ram to apply to other uses?

does the .scm system work for all the apps in the app store of tcl?

This only works for scm extensions, not tcz.
Since they loop mount instead of copying to the file system, there really isn't any RAM reclamation to speak of.
Since they are self contained modules, they actually use slightly more RAM when running.
The real advantage is that previously conflicting packages can loaded and unloaded ( if there are scm versions ).
I suggest you read the scm thread.
