OpenSolaris and Tcl

Just installed OpenSolaris Build 75 and booted it up with xVM (Xen). I tried Brandz before with CentOS 3 with OpenSolaris Build 59, that was quite some time ago. However, I was not very pleased with Brandz running an old Linux kernel 2.4.

Anyway, I need to dig into Xen and tried to understand all the ins and outs. Stay tune, for sure I will blog about my findings.

One of the findings is that Tcl is in the main stream. Also, Tcl binding for PostgreSQL is fully integrated too.

In Solaris 10, it used to be in /usr/sfw (Sunfreeware) directory and is running a pretty old version Tcl 8.3.3.
