brought up but I checked Google Groups
(the dejanews replacement) and saw
nothing: I installed Python2.4 in Win98
and IDLE doesn't work (neither does the
online manual even tho a 3.6KB Python24.chm
is there, but that's a story for another
day) - that is, clicking on the IDLE icon
in the Start menu just gives a brief hourglass
cursor and then nothing . . .
From a DOS prompt (in C:\Python24) I can do'python lib\idlelib\idle.py' and get a list
of errors, not being able to find tcl8.4 in
a number of paths, none of which exist in
the c:\python24 as installed. I moved tcl84.lib
into a directory it does search and got fewer
errors msg's, the last being like 'can't find
a usable init.tcl.' Moved init.tcl to the same
dir as tcl84.lib, got even fewer errors, the
last being like
"_tkinter.TclError: invalid cmd name "tcl_findLibrary"
So I'm stuck. I uninstalled Py2.4, installed Py2.3.5,
again same thing . . . IDLE just does not come up
with the tcl paths of the standard install.
www.python.org gives answer to problems w/IDLE on Py1.5
from 1999 and shows adding tcl\bin to %PATH%. OK . . .
What to try next? SOMEONE else must have seen this?
