gcc development
« on: June 03, 2009, 11:44:18 AM »
It would be very useful if a gcc+make development package would be clearly labeled, i.e., with a .dev extension.  I had to really hunt to find out the packages to recompile a linux kernel when I switched to tcl 2.0.

The development and compiling apps are modular in TC 2.x by design, as well as having been migrated to /usr/local.  But there is discussion of making a "compiletc" meta extension that would install commonly used compiling extensions as dependencies, probably a similar set of apps that is in compiletc in TC 1.x for familiarity.  That way hardcore folks can choose to only install the essentials of what they need in a development environment and others can have a "one click" install of the commonly used compiling apps.
