User & Date: dgp 2018-03-20 13:23:06

  1. Change icomment to:

    This code example makes no sense to me.

    What does an Itcl 3 programmer expect a command [a::a] to do in that context?

    Best I can guess this is an ill-conceived attempt to reach into and abuse the particular implementation of Itcl 3, which Itcl 4 does not reproduce.

    I could be wrong though, I'm not a user of Itcl 3, and don't know the full set of programming expectations its users have.

  2. Change login to "dgp"
  3. Change mimetype to "text/x-fossil-plain"
  4. Change priority to "Immediate"
  5. Change resolution to "Open"
