Missing symlink for tclsh8.5?

I have installed most of the Rocket ported software, just for my own use (it’s good to be a sysprog). I am reading up on TCL and using it in learning mode on my Linux desktop. In the book, and on Linux, the TCL scripting command is “tclsh”. In your port, in /tcl-8.5-11/bin there is the command “tclsh8.5” with a symlink to it of “tcl”. I think it would be more consistent with what I’ve seen elsewhere if there were also an symlink of “tclsh”. Of course, in the “UNIX” arena, I am a GNU/Linux aficionado, so I prefer my z/OS UNIX to looks a bit like what I’m used to in Linux.

Hey, what are you doing here? Shouldn’t you be over in IBM-MAIN? :slight_smile: Welcome, John.

I’ll pass this along to the porting team. You can, of course, make the symlink yourself - but you knew that.

​Yes, I already have created the symlink. Just thought that I’d mention it
to “avoid confusion” for some future user who is not as used to UNIX as I
am.​
