Where do I find a file named libtcl8.0.so?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Tool Command Language (Tcl) : One Thread

I need the file libtcl8.0.so. I downloaded tcl8.3.3.tar.gz which yeilded libtcl8.3.so, but that will not work. (The application seems to want libtcl8.0.so only.) I downloaded tcl8.0.tar.gz but the make program aborts. I also tried tcl8.0.5.tar.gz and tcl8.0p2.tar.gz, they all make program aborts in all but tcl8.3.3.tar.gs. Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks for your help!

the file you mention is a binary compiled version of tcl. There is little we can do to point you to 'the' file, since there is no one such file. Instead, the best thing you can do is take one of the source distributions and configure and build it for your platform. As that version is about 5 or 6 years old, it will likely be a difficult job finding a binary that old.
