tk_edit it's a small tcl-code editor inspired from kroc-edit, the ML editor and a lot of other ideas from the tcl/tk-wiki. It's the summery of that what I need to write tcl-code.

The requirements


This software stands under the BSD LICENSE and comes with NO warranty of any kind. You use it at your own risk.

date version description
27. April 2014 0.7.6
  • Fixed a bug in the search in files function
16. February 2014 0.7.5
  • tk_edit runs now on tcl/tk version 8.6 also
09. September 2009 0.7.4
  • the procedures window uses now the correct fond
  • the procedures window is cleaned if the last text window was closed


Only try out without installation:

An installation into your system is very easy:

Thats all. Now you can start the program with "tk_edit"

Hint for FreeBSD and OpenBSD-user: on your system the tclsh is installed with a version prefix (e.g. tclsh8.5) but we need a simple "tclsh". Before you can start the program you must set a link: e.g. ln -s /usr/local/bin/tclsh8.5 /usr/local/bin/tclsh


Thats all.

Many thanks to

David Zolli for providing the source code of kroc-edit.


Nobody is perfect - bugreports, comments and opinions are very welcome.

I wish you a good time
