No web-browser in TCL/TK?

Hello Tom,

exploring your script, I see you compress any tcl application
in a single separated file. We know, a single big file compress
better, compared to more little. What about a single tar+gz, using
the a member extraction on the fly?

If you got ramdisk space problem, look at hte GCC addon:

RAMDISK="/dev/ram5 /dev/ram6"
MOUNT_POINT="/gcc /gcc/usr/include"

This addon use two ramdisk, ram5 and ram6, mounted in /gcc and

You might use:

RAMDISK="/dev/ram7 /dev/ram8"
MOUNT_POINT="/usr/tcltk/bin /usr/tcltk/lib"

Anycase space occupation is not balanced between bin/ and lib/: this
will result in a waste of ram.

Please, create also a doc/ directory and put in it some little
manual about TCL scripting, if you can.
