critcl_sources(3) How To Get The Sources


Welcome to the C Runtime In Tcl, CriTcl for short, a system to build C extension packages for Tcl on the fly, from C code embedded within Tcl scripts, for all who wish to make their code go faster.

The audience of this document is anyone wishing to either have just a look at Critcl's source code, or build the packages, or to extend and modify them.

For builders and developers we additionally provide

Critcl - License.
Critcl - The Installer's Guide.
Critcl - The Developer's Guide.



The official repository for Critcl can be found at


Assuming that you simply wish to look at the sources, or build a specific revision, the easiest way of retrieving it is to:
Go to this site.
Follow the 'Fork me on Github' link (top-right corner) to the project sources.
Choose the revision under the Commits panel you wish to have and
follow its 'Browse code' link to its detailed information page.
On that page, choose either the "ZIP" link to get a copy of this revision as a Zip archive.


For the curious (or a developer-to-be), the sources are managed by the Git SCM []. Binaries for popular platforms can be found directly at its download page [].

With that tool available the full history can be retrieved via:

    git clone
    cd critcl
to get a checkout of the head of the trunk and move into it for browsing, editing, etc.
