Is there a way to get the TCL version number?
« on: June 18, 2010, 11:16:10 AM »
Hi all,

Is there a way of finding out TCL version number from either a file or a script?

tcl_patchLevel
    When an interpreter is created Tcl initializes this variable to hold a string giving the current patch level for Tcl, such as 8.4.16 for Tcl 8.4 with the first sixteen official patches, or 8.5b3 for the third beta release of Tcl 8.5. The value of this variable is returned by the info patchlevel command.

> tclsh

%  puts $tcl_patchLevel
8.3.4

The "version" command. Look inside to see which file it opens.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.
