If you're running on a platform other than the ones listed above, or if you want to make modifications to Tcl and Tk, you'll need to retrieve the source releases.

Once you've retrieved the sources, click below for instructions on how to configure, compile, and install Tcl/Tk.

How to Compile Tcl Source Releases


You'll want both Tcl and Tk sources. Choose between compressed tar and gzipped tar format. The files listed under the Windows sources contain the same information but are in ZIP format.

Gzip'ed Tar Files
Extract these with this UNIX command line:
gunzip < file.tar.gz | tar xvf -


If you have downloaded the Unix version of these files, there is no need to also download these versions since these files are identical but in ZIP format instead of compressed tar.
