Welcome to the tcllib, the Tcl Standard Library.
================================================

Introduction
------------

This README is intended to be a guide to the tools available to a

	Release manager

working on the creation of a release of Tcllib.

Audience
--------

The intended audience is the release manager of Tcllib, his deputies,
and anybody else interested in the task.

Basics
------

< Flesh this out >

	sak.tcl validate
	sak.tcl test run
	sak.tcl review
	sak.tcl readme
	sak.tcl localdoc
	sak.tcl release (change to include rpmspec+gentip55+yml)

< Tasks, and how to perform them >

  	 Making a release (candidate) branch.

[subsection {Main Directories}]

The main directories in the Tcllib toplevel directory and of interest
to a developer are:

[list_begin definitions]

[def [file modules]]

Each child directory represents one or more packages.

In the case of the latter the packages are usually related in some
way. Examples are [file base64], [file math], and [file struct], with
loose (base64) to strong (math) relations between the packages in the
directory.

[def [file apps]]

This directory contains all the installable applications, with their
documentation. Note that this directory is currently [emph not] split
into sub-directories.

[def [file examples]]

Each child directory [file foo] contains one or more example
application for the packages in [file modules/foo]. These examples are
generally not polished enough to be considered for installation.

[list_end]

[subsection {More Directories}]

[list_begin definitions]

[def [file config]]

This directory contains files supporting the unix build system,
i.e. [file configure] and [file Makefile.in].

[def [file devdoc]]

This directories contains the doctools sources for the global
documentation, like this document and its sibling guides.

[def [file embedded]]

This directory contains the entire documentation formatted for
[term HTML] and styled to properly mix into the web site generated by
fossil for the repository.

[para] This is the documentation accessible from the Tcllib home
directory, represented in the repository as [file embedded/index.md].

[def [file idoc]]

This directory contains the entire documentation formatted for
[term nroff] and [term HTML], the latter without any styling.
This is the documentation which will be installed.

[def [file support]]

This directory contains the sources of internal packages and utilities
used in the implementation of the [file installer.tcl] and
[file sak.tcl] scripts/tools.

[list_end]

[subsection {Top Files}]

[list_begin definitions]
[def [file aclocal.m4]]
[def [file configure]]
[def [file configure.in]]
[def [file Makefile.in]]

These four files comprise the unix build system layered on top of the
[file installer.tcl] script.

[def [file installer.tcl]]

The Tcl-based installation script/tool.

[def [file project.shed]]

Configuration file for [term {Sean Wood}]'s [syscmd PracTcl]
buildsystem.

[def [file sak.tcl]]
This is the main tool for developers and release managers, the
[term {Swiss Army Knife}] of management operations on the collection.

[def [file ChangeLog]]

The log of changes to the global support, when the sources were held
in [term CVS]. Not relevant any logner with the switch to the
[term fossil] SCM.

[def [file license.terms]]

The license in plain ASCII. See also [term {Tcllib - License}] for the
nicely formatted form. The text is identical.

[def [file README.md]]
[def [file .github/CONTRIBUTING.md]]
[def [file .github/ISSUE_TEMPLATE.md]]
[def [file .github/PULL_REQUEST_TEMPLATE.md]]

These markdown-formatted documents are used and shown by the github
mirror of these sources, pointing people back to the official location
and issue trackers.

[def [file DESCRIPTION.txt]]
[def [file STATUS]]
[def [file tcllib.spec]]
[def [file tcllib.tap]]
[def [file tcllib.yml]]

????

[list_end]

[subsection {File Types}]

The most common file types, by file extension, are:

[list_begin definitions]

[def [file .tcl]]
Tcl code for a package, application, or example.

[def [file .man]]
Doctools-formatted documentation, usually for a package.

[def [file .test]]
Test suite for a package, or part of.
Based on [package tcltest].

[def [file .bench]]
Performance benchmarks for a package, or part of.
Based on [file modules/bench].

[def [file .pcx]]
Syntax rules for [term TclDevKit]'s [syscmd tclchecker]. Using these
rules allows the checker to validate the use of commands of a Tcllib
package [package FOO] without having to scan the [file .tcl] files
implementing it.

The standard format used for documentation of packages and other
things in Tcllib is [term doctools].

Its supporting packages are a part of Tcllib, see the directories
[file modules/doctools] and [file modules/dtplite]. The latter is
an application package, with the actual application
[file apps/dtplite] a light wrapper around it.

[para] Tcllib developers gain access to these through the [cmd doc]
method of the [file sak.tcl] tool, another (internal) wrapper around
the [file modules/dptlite] application package.

[comment {===================================================================}]
[subsection {Generate documentation for a specific module}]

Invoke either

[example {  ./sak.tcl doc html FOO }]

or

[example {  ./sak.tcl doc html modules/FOO }]

to generate HTML for the documentation found in the module [file FOO].

Instead of [const html] any other supported format can be used here,
of course.

[para] The generated formatted documentation will be placed into a
directory [file doc] in the current working directory.

[comment {===================================================================}]
[subsection {Generate documentation for all modules}]

Invoke the tool without a module name, i.e.

[example {  ./sak.tcl doc html }]

to generate HTML for the documentation found in all modules.

Instead of [const html] any other supported format can be used here,
of course.

[para] The generated formatted documentation will be placed into a
directory [file doc] in the current working directory.

[comment {===================================================================}]
[subsection {Available output formats, help}]

Invoke the tool as

[example {  ./sak.tcl help doc }]

to see the entire set of supported output formats which can be
generated.

[comment {===================================================================}]
[subsection {Validation without output}]

Note the special format [const validate].

[para] Using this value as the name of the format to generate forces
the tool to simply check that the documentation is syntactically
correct, without generating actual output.

[para] Invoke it as either

[example {  ./sak.tcl doc validate (modules/)FOO }]

or

[example {  ./sak.tcl doc validate }]

to either check the packages of a specific module or check all of
them.

When contributing one or more packages for full inclusion into Tcllib
you are committing yourself to

[list_begin enumerated]

[enum] Follow the guidelines laid down in
       [term {Tcl Community - Kind Communication}]
       (as any contributor)

[enum] Maintenance of the new packages for a period of two years under
       the following rules, and responsibilities:

       [list_begin enumerated]

       [enum] A maintainer may step down after the mandatory period as
       	      they see fit.

       [enum] A maintainer may step down before the end of the
      	      mandatory period, under the condition that a replacement
      	      maintainer is immediatel available and has agreed to
      	      serve the remainder of the period, plus their own
      	      mandatory period (see below).

       [enum] When stepping down without a replacement maintainer
      	      taking over the relevant packages have to be flagged as
      	      [const unmaintained].

       [enum] When a replacement mantainer is brought in for a package
      	      it is (kept) marked as [const maintained] (again).

       [para] A replacement maintainer is bound by the same rules as
	      the original maintainer, except that the mandatory
	      period of maintenance is shortened to one year.

       [enum] For any [const unmaintained] package a contributor
       	      interested in becoming its maintainer can become so by
       	      flagging them as [const maintained] with their name and
       	      contact information, committing themselves to the rules

Testsuites in Tcllib are based on Tcl's standard test package
[package tcltest], plus utilities found in the directory
[file modules/devtools]

[para] Tcllib developers invoke the suites through the
[cmd {test run}] method of the [file sak.tcl] tool, with other methods
of [cmd test] providing management operations, for example setting a
list of standard Tcl shells to use.

[comment {===================================================================}]
[subsection {Invoke the testsuites of a specific module}]

Invoke either

[example {  ./sak.tcl test run FOO }]

or

[example {  ./sak.tcl test run modules/FOO }]

to invoke the testsuites found in a specific module [file FOO].

[comment {===================================================================}]
[subsection {Invoke the testsuites of all modules}]

Invoke the tool without a module name, i.e.

[example {  ./sak.tcl test run }]

to invoke the testsuites of all modules.

[comment {===================================================================}]
[subsection {Detailed Test Logs}]

In all the previous examples the test runner will write a combination
of progress display and testsuite log to the standard output, showing
for each module only the tests that passed or failed and how many of
each in a summary at the end.

[para] To get a detailed log, it is necessary to invoke the test
runner with additional options.

[para] For one:

[example {
   ./sak.tcl test run --log LOG FOO
}]

While this shows the same short log on the terminal as before, it also
writes a detailed log to the file [file LOG.log], and excerpts to
other files ([file LOG.summary], [file LOG.failures], etc.).

[para] For two:

[example {
  ./sak.tcl test run -v FOO
}]

This writes the detailed log to the standard output, instead of the
short log.

[para] Regardless of form, the detailed log contains a list of all test
cases executed, which failed, and how they failed (expected versus
actual results).

[comment {===================================================================}]
[subsection {Shell Selection}]

By default the test runner will use all the Tcl shells specified via
[cmd {test add}] to invoke the specified testsuites, if any. If no
such are specified it will fall back to the Tcl shell used to ran the
tool itself.

[para] Use option [option --shell] to explicitly specify the Tcl shell
to use, like

[example {
  ./sak.tcl test run --shell /path/to/tclsh ...
}]

[comment {===================================================================}]
[subsection Help]

Invoke the tool as

[example {  ./sak.tcl help test }]

to see the detailed help for all methods of [cmd test], and the
associated options.

With the release made it has to be published and the world notified of
its existence.

[list_begin enumerated]

[enum]	    Create a proper fossil event for the release, via
	    [uri http://core.tcl-lang.org/tcllib/eventedit].

[para]	    An [uri http://core.tcl-lang.org/tcllib/event/dac0ddcd2e990234143196b4dc438fe01e7b9817 {existing event}] should be used as template.

[enum]	    Update a number of web locations:

[list_begin enumerated]
[enum]	    [uri http://core.tcl-lang.org/tcllib/doc/trunk/embedded/index.md {Home page}]
[enum]	    [uri http://core.tcl-lang.org/tcllib/wiki?name=Downloads     Downloads]
[enum]	    [uri http://core.tcl-lang.org/tcllib/wiki?name=Past+Releases {Past Releases}]
[enum]	    [uri http://www.tcl-lang.org/home/release.txt     ]
[enum]	    [uri http://www.tcl-lang.org/software/tcllib/*.tml]
[enum]	    [uri http://wiki.tcl-lang.org/1246]
[list_end]

The first location maps to the file [file embedded/index.md] in the
repository itself, as such it can edited as part of the release
process. This is where reference to the new fossil event is added, as
the new current release.

[para] The next two locations are in the fossil tcllib wiki and
require admin or wiki write permissions for
[uri http://core.tcl-lang.org/tcllib].

[para] The last two locations require ssh access to
[uri http://www.tcl-lang.org] and permission to edit
files in the web area.


[enum]	***TODO*** mailing lists and other places to send notes to.

The [file sak.tcl] script in the toplevel directory of a Tcllib
checkout is the one tool used by the release manager to perform its
[sectref Tasks].

[para] The main commands to be used are

[example {
    sak.tcl validate
    sak.tcl test run
    sak.tcl review
    sak.tcl readme
    sak.tcl localdoc
    sak.tcl release
}]

More detail will be provided in the explanations of the various

[para]

This document is a guide for developers working on Tcllib,
i.e. maintainers fixing bugs, extending the collection's
functionality, etc.

[para]

Please read

[list_begin enum]
[enum] [term {Tcllib - How To Get The Sources}] and
[enum] [term {Tcllib - The Installer's Guide}]

first, if that was not done already.

[para] Here we assume that the sources are already available in a
directory of your choice, and that you not only know how to build and
install them, but also have all the necessary requisites to actually
do so. The guide to the sources in particular also explains which
source code management system is used, where to find it, how to set it
up, etc.

<p>Welcome to Tcllib, the Tcl Standard Library. Note that Tcllib is not a
package itself. It is a collection of (semi-independent) <i class="term"><a href="../../../index.html#tcl">Tcl</a></i>
packages that provide utility functions useful to a large collection
of Tcl programmers.</p>
<p>This document is a guide for developers working on Tcllib,
i.e. maintainers fixing bugs, extending the collection's
functionality, etc.</p>
<p>Please read</p>
<ol class="doctools_enumerated">
<li><p><i class="term"><a href="tcllib_sources.html">Tcllib - How To Get The Sources</a></i> and</p></li>
<li><p><i class="term"><a href="tcllib_installer.html">Tcllib - The Installer's Guide</a></i></p></li>
</ol>
<p>first, if that was not done already.</p>
<p>Here we assume that the sources are already available in a
directory of your choice, and that you not only know how to build and
install them, but also have all the necessary requisites to actually
do so. The guide to the sources in particular also explains which
source code management system is used, where to find it, how to set it
up, etc.</p>

<div id="section2" class="doctools_section"><h2><a name="section2">Commitments</a></h2>
<div id="subsection1" class="doctools_subsection"><h3><a name="subsection1">Contributor</a></h3>
<p>As a contributor to Tcllib you are committing yourself to:</p>

<li><p>Follow the guidelines laid down in

<ol class="doctools_enumerated">
       
<li><p>A maintainer may step down after the mandatory period as
       	      they see fit.</p></li>
<li><p>A maintainer may step down before the end of the
      	      mandatory period, under the condition that a replacement
      	      maintainer is immediatel available and has agreed to
      	      serve the remainder of the period, plus their own
      	      mandatory period (see below).</p></li>
<li><p>When stepping down without a replacement maintainer
      	      taking over the relevant packages have to be flagged as
      	      <b class="const">unmaintained</b>.</p></li>
<li><p>When a replacement mantainer is brought in for a package
      	      it is (kept) marked as <b class="const">maintained</b> (again).</p>
<p>A replacement maintainer is bound by the same rules as
	      the original maintainer, except that the mandatory
	      period of maintenance is shortened to one year.</p></li>
<li><p>For any <b class="const">unmaintained</b> package a contributor
       	      interested in becoming its maintainer can become so by
       	      flagging them as <b class="const">maintained</b> with their name and
       	      contact information, committing themselves to the rules
       	      of a replacement maintainer (see previous).</p></li>
<li><p>For any already <b class="const">maintained</b> package a contributor
       	      interested in becoming a co-maintainer can become so
       	      with the agreement of the existing maintainer(s),
       	      committing themselves to the rules of a replacement
       	      maintainer (see two above).</p></li>
</ol>
<p>The responsibilities as a maintainer include:</p>
<ol class="doctools_enumerated">

<p>The main directories in the Tcllib toplevel directory and of interest
to a developer are:</p>
<dl class="doctools_definitions">
<dt>&quot;<b class="file">modules</b>&quot;</dt>
<dd><p>Each child directory represents one or more packages.
In the case of the latter the packages are usually related in some
way. Examples are &quot;<b class="file">base64</b>&quot;, &quot;<b class="file">math</b>&quot;, and &quot;<b class="file">struct</b>&quot;, with
loose (base64) to strong (math) relations between the packages in the
directory.</p></dd>
<dt>&quot;<b class="file">apps</b>&quot;</dt>
<dd><p>This directory contains all the installable applications, with their
documentation. Note that this directory is currently <em>not</em> split
into sub-directories.</p></dd>
<dt>&quot;<b class="file">examples</b>&quot;</dt>
<dd><p>Each child directory &quot;<b class="file">foo</b>&quot; contains one or more example
application for the packages in &quot;<b class="file">modules/foo</b>&quot;. These examples are
generally not polished enough to be considered for installation.</p></dd>
</dl>

<div id="subsection4" class="doctools_subsection"><h3><a name="subsection4">More Directories</a></h3>
<dl class="doctools_definitions">
<dt>&quot;<b class="file">config</b>&quot;</dt>

i.e. &quot;<b class="file">configure</b>&quot; and &quot;<b class="file">Makefile.in</b>&quot;.</p></dd>
<dt>&quot;<b class="file">devdoc</b>&quot;</dt>
<dd><p>This directories contains the doctools sources for the global
documentation, like this document and its sibling guides.</p></dd>
<dt>&quot;<b class="file">embedded</b>&quot;</dt>
<dd><p>This directory contains the entire documentation formatted for

<div id="section5" class="doctools_section"><h2><a name="section5">Testsuite Tooling</a></h2>
<p>Testsuites in Tcllib are based on Tcl's standard test package
<b class="package">tcltest</b>, plus utilities found in the directory
&quot;<b class="file">modules/devtools</b>&quot;</p>
<p>Tcllib developers invoke the suites through the
<b class="cmd">test run</b> method of the &quot;<b class="file">sak.tcl</b>&quot; tool, with other methods
of <b class="cmd"><a href="../../../index.html#test">test</a></b> providing management operations, for example setting a
list of standard Tcl shells to use.</p>
<div id="subsection7" class="doctools_subsection"><h3><a name="subsection7">Invoke the testsuites of a specific module</a></h3>
<p>Invoke either</p>
<pre class="doctools_example">  ./sak.tcl test run FOO </pre>
<p>or</p>
<pre class="doctools_example">  ./sak.tcl test run modules/FOO </pre>
<p>to invoke the testsuites found in a specific module &quot;<b class="file">FOO</b>&quot;.</p>
</div>
<div id="subsection8" class="doctools_subsection"><h3><a name="subsection8">Invoke the testsuites of all modules</a></h3>
<p>Invoke the tool without a module name, i.e.</p>
<pre class="doctools_example">  ./sak.tcl test run </pre>
<p>to invoke the testsuites of all modules.</p>
</div>
<div id="subsection9" class="doctools_subsection"><h3><a name="subsection9">Detailed Test Logs</a></h3>
<p>In all the previous examples the test runner will write a combination
of progress display and testsuite log to the standard output, showing
for each module only the tests that passed or failed and how many of
each in a summary at the end.</p>
<p>To get a detailed log, it is necessary to invoke the test
runner with additional options.</p>
<p>For one:</p>
<pre class="doctools_example">
   ./sak.tcl test run --log LOG FOO
</pre>
<p>While this shows the same short log on the terminal as before, it also
writes a detailed log to the file &quot;<b class="file">LOG.log</b>&quot;, and excerpts to
other files (&quot;<b class="file">LOG.summary</b>&quot;, &quot;<b class="file">LOG.failures</b>&quot;, etc.).</p>
<p>For two:</p>
<pre class="doctools_example">
  ./sak.tcl test run -v FOO
</pre>
<p>This writes the detailed log to the standard output, instead of the
short log.</p>
<p>Regardless of form, the detailed log contains a list of all test
cases executed, which failed, and how they failed (expected versus
actual results).</p>
</div>
<div id="subsection10" class="doctools_subsection"><h3><a name="subsection10">Shell Selection</a></h3>
<p>By default the test runner will use all the Tcl shells specified via
<b class="cmd">test add</b> to invoke the specified testsuites, if any. If no
such are specified it will fall back to the Tcl shell used to ran the
tool itself.</p>
<p>Use option <b class="option">--shell</b> to explicitly specify the Tcl shell
to use, like</p>
<pre class="doctools_example">
  ./sak.tcl test run --shell /path/to/tclsh ...
</pre>
</div>
<div id="subsection11" class="doctools_subsection"><h3><a name="subsection11">Help</a></h3>
<p>Invoke the tool as</p>
<pre class="doctools_example">  ./sak.tcl help test </pre>
<p>to see the detailed help for all methods of <b class="cmd"><a href="../../../index.html#test">test</a></b>, and the
associated options.</p>
</div>
</div>
<div id="section6" class="doctools_section"><h2><a name="section6">Documentation Tooling</a></h2>
<p>The standard format used for documentation of packages and other
things in Tcllib is <i class="term"><a href="../../../index.html#doctools">doctools</a></i>.
Its supporting packages are a part of Tcllib, see the directories
&quot;<b class="file">modules/doctools</b>&quot; and &quot;<b class="file">modules/dtplite</b>&quot;. The latter is
an application package, with the actual application
&quot;<b class="file">apps/dtplite</b>&quot; a light wrapper around it.</p>
<p>Tcllib developers gain access to these through the <b class="cmd">doc</b>
method of the &quot;<b class="file">sak.tcl</b>&quot; tool, another (internal) wrapper around
the &quot;<b class="file">modules/dptlite</b>&quot; application package.</p>
<div id="subsection12" class="doctools_subsection"><h3><a name="subsection12">Generate documentation for a specific module</a></h3>
<p>Invoke either</p>
<pre class="doctools_example">  ./sak.tcl doc html FOO </pre>
<p>or</p>
<pre class="doctools_example">  ./sak.tcl doc html modules/FOO </pre>
<p>to generate HTML for the documentation found in the module &quot;<b class="file">FOO</b>&quot;.
Instead of <b class="const">html</b> any other supported format can be used here,
of course.</p>
<p>The generated formatted documentation will be placed into a
directory &quot;<b class="file">doc</b>&quot; in the current working directory.</p>
</div>
<div id="subsection13" class="doctools_subsection"><h3><a name="subsection13">Generate documentation for all modules</a></h3>
<p>Invoke the tool without a module name, i.e.</p>
<pre class="doctools_example">  ./sak.tcl doc html </pre>
<p>to generate HTML for the documentation found in all modules.
Instead of <b class="const">html</b> any other supported format can be used here,
of course.</p>
<p>The generated formatted documentation will be placed into a
directory &quot;<b class="file">doc</b>&quot; in the current working directory.</p>
</div>
<div id="subsection14" class="doctools_subsection"><h3><a name="subsection14">Available output formats, help</a></h3>
<p>Invoke the tool as</p>
<pre class="doctools_example">  ./sak.tcl help doc </pre>
<p>to see the entire set of supported output formats which can be
generated.</p>
</div>
<div id="subsection15" class="doctools_subsection"><h3><a name="subsection15">Validation without output</a></h3>
<p>Note the special format <b class="const">validate</b>.</p>
<p>Using this value as the name of the format to generate forces
the tool to simply check that the documentation is syntactically
correct, without generating actual output.</p>
<p>Invoke it as either</p>
<pre class="doctools_example">  ./sak.tcl doc validate (modules/)FOO </pre>
<p>or</p>
<pre class="doctools_example">  ./sak.tcl doc validate </pre>
<p>to either check the packages of a specific module or check all of
them.

<p>An <a href="http://core.tcl-lang.org/tcllib/event/dac0ddcd2e990234143196b4dc438fe01e7b9817">existing event</a> should be used as template.</p></li>

<li><p><a href="http://core.tcl-lang.org/tcllib/doc/trunk/embedded/index.md">Home page</a></p></li>
<li><p><a href="http://core.tcl-lang.org/tcllib/wiki?name=Downloads">Downloads</a></p></li>

<p>The first location maps to the file &quot;<b class="file">embedded/index.md</b>&quot; in the
repository itself, as such it can edited as part of the release
process. This is where reference to the new fossil event is added, as
the new current release.</p>
<p>The next two locations are in the fossil tcllib wiki and
require admin or wiki write permissions for
<a href="http://core.tcl-lang.org/tcllib">http://core.tcl-lang.org/tcllib</a>.</p>
<p>The last two locations require ssh access to
<a href="http://www.tcl-lang.org">http://www.tcl-lang.org</a> and permission to edit
files in the web area.</p></li>

.\" The -*- nroff -*- definitions below are for supplemental macros used
.\" in Tcl/Tk manual entries.
.\"
.\" .AP type name in/out ?indent?
.\"	Start paragraph describing an argument to a library procedure.
.\"	type is type of argument (int, etc.), in/out is either "in", "out",
.\"	or "in/out" to describe whether procedure reads or modifies arg,
.\"	and indent is equivalent to second arg of .IP (shouldn't ever be
.\"	needed;  use .AS below instead)
.\"
.\" .AS ?type? ?name?
.\"	Give maximum sizes of arguments for setting tab stops.  Type and
.\"	name are examples of largest possible arguments that will be passed
.\"	to .AP later.  If args are omitted, default tab stops are used.
.\"
.\" .BS
.\"	Start box enclosure.  From here until next .BE, everything will be
.\"	enclosed in one large box.
.\"
.\" .BE
.\"	End of box enclosure.
.\"
.\" .CS
.\"	Begin code excerpt.
.\"
.\" .CE
.\"	End code excerpt.
.\"
.\" .VS ?version? ?br?
.\"	Begin vertical sidebar, for use in marking newly-changed parts
.\"	of man pages.  The first argument is ignored and used for recording
.\"	the version when the .VS was added, so that the sidebars can be
.\"	found and removed when they reach a certain age.  If another argument
.\"	is present, then a line break is forced before starting the sidebar.
.\"
.\" .VE
.\"	End of vertical sidebar.
.\"
.\" .DS
.\"	Begin an indented unfilled display.
.\"
.\" .DE
.\"	End of indented unfilled display.
.\"
.\" .SO ?manpage?
.\"	Start of list of standard options for a Tk widget. The manpage
.\"	argument defines where to look up the standard options; if
.\"	omitted, defaults to "options". The options follow on successive
.\"	lines, in three columns separated by tabs.
.\"
.\" .SE
.\"	End of list of standard options for a Tk widget.
.\"
.\" .OP cmdName dbName dbClass
.\"	Start of description of a specific option.  cmdName gives the
.\"	option's name as specified in the class command, dbName gives
.\"	the option's name in the option database, and dbClass gives
.\"	the option's class in the option database.
.\"
.\" .UL arg1 arg2
.\"	Print arg1 underlined, then print arg2 normally.
.\"
.\" .QW arg1 ?arg2?
.\"	Print arg1 in quotes, then arg2 normally (for trailing punctuation).
.\"
.\" .PQ arg1 ?arg2?
.\"	Print an open parenthesis, arg1 in quotes, then arg2 normally
.\"	(for trailing punctuation) and then a closing parenthesis.

.\" The -*- nroff -*- definitions below are for supplemental macros used
.\" in Tcl/Tk manual entries.
.\"
.\" .AP type name in/out ?indent?
.\"	Start paragraph describing an argument to a library procedure.
.\"	type is type of argument (int, etc.), in/out is either "in", "out",
.\"	or "in/out" to describe whether procedure reads or modifies arg,
.\"	and indent is equivalent to second arg of .IP (shouldn't ever be
.\"	needed;  use .AS below instead)
.\"
.\" .AS ?type? ?name?
.\"	Give maximum sizes of arguments for setting tab stops.  Type and
.\"	name are examples of largest possible arguments that will be passed
.\"	to .AP later.  If args are omitted, default tab stops are used.
.\"
.\" .BS
.\"	Start box enclosure.  From here until next .BE, everything will be
.\"	enclosed in one large box.
.\"
.\" .BE
.\"	End of box enclosure.
.\"
.\" .CS
.\"	Begin code excerpt.
.\"
.\" .CE
.\"	End code excerpt.
.\"
.\" .VS ?version? ?br?
.\"	Begin vertical sidebar, for use in marking newly-changed parts
.\"	of man pages.  The first argument is ignored and used for recording
.\"	the version when the .VS was added, so that the sidebars can be
.\"	found and removed when they reach a certain age.  If another argument
.\"	is present, then a line break is forced before starting the sidebar.
.\"
.\" .VE
.\"	End of vertical sidebar.
.\"
.\" .DS
.\"	Begin an indented unfilled display.
.\"
.\" .DE
.\"	End of indented unfilled display.
.\"
.\" .SO ?manpage?
.\"	Start of list of standard options for a Tk widget. The manpage
.\"	argument defines where to look up the standard options; if
.\"	omitted, defaults to "options". The options follow on successive
.\"	lines, in three columns separated by tabs.
.\"
.\" .SE
.\"	End of list of standard options for a Tk widget.
.\"
.\" .OP cmdName dbName dbClass
.\"	Start of description of a specific option.  cmdName gives the
.\"	option's name as specified in the class command, dbName gives
.\"	the option's name in the option database, and dbClass gives
.\"	the option's class in the option database.
.\"
.\" .UL arg1 arg2
.\"	Print arg1 underlined, then print arg2 normally.
.\"
.\" .QW arg1 ?arg2?
.\"	Print arg1 in quotes, then arg2 normally (for trailing punctuation).
.\"
.\" .PQ arg1 ?arg2?
.\"	Print an open parenthesis, arg1 in quotes, then arg2 normally
.\"	(for trailing punctuation) and then a closing parenthesis.

.SH NAME
tcllib_devguide \- Tcllib - The Developer's Guide
.SH DESCRIPTION
Welcome to Tcllib, the Tcl Standard Library\&. Note that Tcllib is not a
package itself\&. It is a collection of (semi-independent) \fITcl\fR
packages that provide utility functions useful to a large collection
of Tcl programmers\&.
.PP
This document is a guide for developers working on Tcllib,
i\&.e\&. maintainers fixing bugs, extending the collection's
functionality, etc\&.
.PP
Please read
.IP [1]
\fITcllib - How To Get The Sources\fR and
.IP [2]
\fITcllib - The Installer's Guide\fR
.PP
first, if that was not done already\&.
.PP
Here we assume that the sources are already available in a
directory of your choice, and that you not only know how to build and
install them, but also have all the necessary requisites to actually
do so\&. The guide to the sources in particular also explains which
source code management system is used, where to find it, how to set it
up, etc\&.
.SH COMMITMENTS
.SS CONTRIBUTOR
As a contributor to Tcllib you are committing yourself to:
.IP [1]
Follow the guidelines laid down in
\fITcl Community - Kind Communication\fR
.PP
Contributions are made by entering tickets into our tracker, providing
patches, bundles or branches of code for inclusion, or posting to the
Tcllib related mailing lists\&.
.SS MAINTAINER
When contributing one or more packages for full inclusion into Tcllib
you are committing yourself to
.IP [1]
Follow the guidelines laid down in
\fITcl Community - Kind Communication\fR
(as any contributor)
.IP [2]
Maintenance of the new packages for a period of two years under
the following rules, and responsibilities:
.RS
.IP [1]
A maintainer may step down after the mandatory period as
they see fit\&.
.IP [2]
A maintainer may step down before the end of the
mandatory period, under the condition that a replacement
maintainer is immediatel available and has agreed to
serve the remainder of the period, plus their own
mandatory period (see below)\&.
.IP [3]
When stepping down without a replacement maintainer
taking over the relevant packages have to be flagged as
\fBunmaintained\fR\&.
.IP [4]
When a replacement mantainer is brought in for a package
it is (kept) marked as \fBmaintained\fR (again)\&.
.sp
A replacement maintainer is bound by the same rules as
the original maintainer, except that the mandatory
period of maintenance is shortened to one year\&.
.IP [5]
For any \fBunmaintained\fR package a contributor
interested in becoming its maintainer can become so by
flagging them as \fBmaintained\fR with their name and
contact information, committing themselves to the rules
of a replacement maintainer (see previous)\&.
.IP [6]
For any already \fBmaintained\fR package a contributor
interested in becoming a co-maintainer can become so
with the agreement of the existing maintainer(s),
committing themselves to the rules of a replacement
maintainer (see two above)\&.
.RE
.sp
The responsibilities as a maintainer include:
.RS
.IP [1]
Watching Tcllib's ticket tracker for bugs, bug fixes,
and feature requests related to the new packages\&.
.IP [2]
Reviewing the aforementioned tickets, rejecting or
applying them
.IP [3]

.SH "STRUCTURAL OVERVIEW"
.SS "MAIN DIRECTORIES"
The main directories in the Tcllib toplevel directory and of interest
to a developer are:
.TP
"\fImodules\fR"
Each child directory represents one or more packages\&.
In the case of the latter the packages are usually related in some
way\&. Examples are "\fIbase64\fR", "\fImath\fR", and "\fIstruct\fR", with
loose (base64) to strong (math) relations between the packages in the
directory\&.
.TP
"\fIapps\fR"
This directory contains all the installable applications, with their
documentation\&. Note that this directory is currently \fInot\fR split
into sub-directories\&.
.TP
"\fIexamples\fR"
Each child directory "\fIfoo\fR" contains one or more example
application for the packages in "\fImodules/foo\fR"\&. These examples are
generally not polished enough to be considered for installation\&.
.PP
.SS "MORE DIRECTORIES"
.TP
"\fIconfig\fR"
This directory contains files supporting the unix build system,
i\&.e\&. "\fIconfigure\fR" and "\fIMakefile\&.in\fR"\&.
.TP
"\fIdevdoc\fR"
This directories contains the doctools sources for the global
documentation, like this document and its sibling guides\&.
.TP
"\fIembedded\fR"
This directory contains the entire documentation formatted for
\fIHTML\fR and styled to properly mix into the web site generated by
fossil for the repository\&.
.sp
This is the documentation accessible from the Tcllib home
directory, represented in the repository as "\fIembedded/index\&.md\fR"\&.
.TP
"\fIidoc\fR"
This directory contains the entire documentation formatted for
\fInroff\fR and \fIHTML\fR, the latter without any styling\&.
This is the documentation which will be installed\&.
.TP
"\fIsupport\fR"
This directory contains the sources of internal packages and utilities
used in the implementation of the "\fIinstaller\&.tcl\fR" and
"\fIsak\&.tcl\fR" scripts/tools\&.
.PP
.SS "TOP FILES"
.TP
"\fIaclocal\&.m4\fR"
.TP
"\fIconfigure\fR"
.TP
"\fIconfigure\&.in\fR"
.TP
"\fIMakefile\&.in\fR"
These four files comprise the unix build system layered on top of the
"\fIinstaller\&.tcl\fR" script\&.
.TP
"\fIinstaller\&.tcl\fR"
The Tcl-based installation script/tool\&.
.TP
"\fIproject\&.shed\fR"
Configuration file for \fISean Wood\fR's \fBPracTcl\fR
buildsystem\&.
.TP
"\fIsak\&.tcl\fR"
This is the main tool for developers and release managers, the
\fISwiss Army Knife\fR of management operations on the collection\&.
.TP
"\fIChangeLog\fR"
The log of changes to the global support, when the sources were held
in \fICVS\fR\&. Not relevant any logner with the switch to the
\fIfossil\fR SCM\&.
.TP
"\fIlicense\&.terms\fR"
The license in plain ASCII\&. See also \fITcllib - License\fR for the
nicely formatted form\&. The text is identical\&.
.TP
"\fIREADME\&.md\fR"
.TP
"\fI\&.github/CONTRIBUTING\&.md\fR"
.TP
"\fI\&.github/ISSUE_TEMPLATE\&.md\fR"
.TP
"\fI\&.github/PULL_REQUEST_TEMPLATE\&.md\fR"
These markdown-formatted documents are used and shown by the github
mirror of these sources, pointing people back to the official location
and issue trackers\&.
.TP
"\fIDESCRIPTION\&.txt\fR"
.TP
"\fISTATUS\fR"
.TP
"\fItcllib\&.spec\fR"
.TP
"\fItcllib\&.tap\fR"
.TP
"\fItcllib\&.yml\fR"
????
.PP
.SS "FILE TYPES"
The most common file types, by file extension, are:
.TP
"\fI\&.tcl\fR"
Tcl code for a package, application, or example\&.
.TP
"\fI\&.man\fR"
Doctools-formatted documentation, usually for a package\&.
.TP
"\fI\&.test\fR"
Test suite for a package, or part of\&.
Based on \fBtcltest\fR\&.
.TP
"\fI\&.bench\fR"
Performance benchmarks for a package, or part of\&.
Based on "\fImodules/bench\fR"\&.
.TP
"\fI\&.pcx\fR"
Syntax rules for \fITclDevKit\fR's \fBtclchecker\fR\&. Using these
rules allows the checker to validate the use of commands of a Tcllib
package \fBFOO\fR without having to scan the "\fI\&.tcl\fR" files
implementing it\&.
.PP
.SH "TESTSUITE TOOLING"
Testsuites in Tcllib are based on Tcl's standard test package
\fBtcltest\fR, plus utilities found in the directory
"\fImodules/devtools\fR"
.PP
Tcllib developers invoke the suites through the
\fBtest run\fR method of the "\fIsak\&.tcl\fR" tool, with other methods
of \fBtest\fR providing management operations, for example setting a
list of standard Tcl shells to use\&.
.SS "INVOKE THE TESTSUITES OF A SPECIFIC MODULE"
Invoke either
.CS

  \&./sak\&.tcl test run FOO
.CE
or
.CS

  \&./sak\&.tcl test run modules/FOO
.CE
to invoke the testsuites found in a specific module "\fIFOO\fR"\&.
.SS "INVOKE THE TESTSUITES OF ALL MODULES"
Invoke the tool without a module name, i\&.e\&.
.CS

  \&./sak\&.tcl test run
.CE
to invoke the testsuites of all modules\&.
.SS "DETAILED TEST LOGS"
In all the previous examples the test runner will write a combination
of progress display and testsuite log to the standard output, showing
for each module only the tests that passed or failed and how many of
each in a summary at the end\&.
.PP
To get a detailed log, it is necessary to invoke the test
runner with additional options\&.
.PP
For one:
.CS


   \&./sak\&.tcl test run --log LOG FOO

.CE
While this shows the same short log on the terminal as before, it also
writes a detailed log to the file "\fILOG\&.log\fR", and excerpts to
other files ("\fILOG\&.summary\fR", "\fILOG\&.failures\fR", etc\&.)\&.
.PP
For two:
.CS


  \&./sak\&.tcl test run -v FOO

.CE
This writes the detailed log to the standard output, instead of the
short log\&.
.PP
Regardless of form, the detailed log contains a list of all test
cases executed, which failed, and how they failed (expected versus
actual results)\&.
.SS "SHELL SELECTION"
By default the test runner will use all the Tcl shells specified via
\fBtest add\fR to invoke the specified testsuites, if any\&. If no
such are specified it will fall back to the Tcl shell used to ran the
tool itself\&.
.PP
Use option \fB--shell\fR to explicitly specify the Tcl shell
to use, like
.CS


  \&./sak\&.tcl test run --shell /path/to/tclsh \&.\&.\&.

.CE
.SS HELP
Invoke the tool as
.CS

  \&./sak\&.tcl help test
.CE
to see the detailed help for all methods of \fBtest\fR, and the
associated options\&.
.SH "DOCUMENTATION TOOLING"
The standard format used for documentation of packages and other
things in Tcllib is \fIdoctools\fR\&.
Its supporting packages are a part of Tcllib, see the directories
"\fImodules/doctools\fR" and "\fImodules/dtplite\fR"\&. The latter is
an application package, with the actual application
"\fIapps/dtplite\fR" a light wrapper around it\&.
.PP
Tcllib developers gain access to these through the \fBdoc\fR
method of the "\fIsak\&.tcl\fR" tool, another (internal) wrapper around
the "\fImodules/dptlite\fR" application package\&.
.SS "GENERATE DOCUMENTATION FOR A SPECIFIC MODULE"
Invoke either
.CS

  \&./sak\&.tcl doc html FOO
.CE
or
.CS

  \&./sak\&.tcl doc html modules/FOO
.CE
to generate HTML for the documentation found in the module "\fIFOO\fR"\&.
Instead of \fBhtml\fR any other supported format can be used here,
of course\&.
.PP
The generated formatted documentation will be placed into a
directory "\fIdoc\fR" in the current working directory\&.
.SS "GENERATE DOCUMENTATION FOR ALL MODULES"
Invoke the tool without a module name, i\&.e\&.
.CS

  \&./sak\&.tcl doc html
.CE
to generate HTML for the documentation found in all modules\&.
Instead of \fBhtml\fR any other supported format can be used here,
of course\&.
.PP
The generated formatted documentation will be placed into a
directory "\fIdoc\fR" in the current working directory\&.
.SS "AVAILABLE OUTPUT FORMATS, HELP"
Invoke the tool as
.CS

  \&./sak\&.tcl help doc
.CE
to see the entire set of supported output formats which can be
generated\&.
.SS "VALIDATION WITHOUT OUTPUT"
Note the special format \fBvalidate\fR\&.
.PP
Using this value as the name of the format to generate forces
the tool to simply check that the documentation is syntactically
correct, without generating actual output\&.
.PP
Invoke it as either
.CS

  \&./sak\&.tcl doc validate (modules/)FOO
.CE
or
.CS

  \&./sak\&.tcl doc validate
.CE
to either check the packages of a specific module or check all of
them\&.

.SH NAME
tcllib_releasemgr \- Tcllib - The Release Manager's Guide
.SH DESCRIPTION
Welcome to Tcllib, the Tcl Standard Library\&. Note that Tcllib is not a
package itself\&. It is a collection of (semi-independent) \fITcl\fR
packages that provide utility functions useful to a large collection
of Tcl programmers\&.
.PP
The audience of this document is the release manager for Tcllib, his
or her deputies, and anybody else interested in the task of creating
an official release of Tcllib for distribution\&.
.PP
Please read \fITcllib - How To Get The Sources\fR first, if that
was not done already\&. Here we assume that the sources are already
available in a directory of your choice\&.
.PP
.SH TOOLS
The "\fIsak\&.tcl\fR" script in the toplevel directory of a Tcllib
checkout is the one tool used by the release manager to perform its
\fBTasks\fR\&.
.PP
The main commands to be used are
.CS


    sak\&.tcl validate
    sak\&.tcl test run
    sak\&.tcl review
    sak\&.tcl readme
    sak\&.tcl localdoc
    sak\&.tcl release

.CE
More detail will be provided in the explanations of the various
\fBTasks\fR\&.
.SH TASKS
.SS "START A RELEASE CANDIDATE"
todo: open a candidate for release
.SS "READY THE CANDIDATE"
todo: test, validate and check that the candidate is worthy of release
fix testsuites, possibly fix packages, documentation
regenerate docs
coordinate with package maintainers wrt fixes
big thing: going over the packages, classify changes since last
release to generate a nice readme\&.
.SS "MAKE IT OFFICIAL"
todo: finalize release, make candidate official
.SS "DISTRIBUTE THE RELEASE"
With the release made it has to be published and the world notified of
its existence\&.
.IP [1]
Create a proper fossil event for the release, via
\fIhttp://core\&.tcl-lang\&.org/tcllib/eventedit\fR\&.
.sp
An \fIexisting event\fR [http://core\&.tcl-lang\&.org/tcllib/event/dac0ddcd2e990234143196b4dc438fe01e7b9817] should be used as template\&.
.IP [2]
Update a number of web locations:
.RS
.IP [1]
\fIHome page\fR [http://core\&.tcl-lang\&.org/tcllib/doc/trunk/embedded/index\&.md]
.IP [2]
\fIDownloads\fR [http://core\&.tcl-lang\&.org/tcllib/wiki?name=Downloads]
.IP [3]
\fIPast Releases\fR [http://core\&.tcl-lang\&.org/tcllib/wiki?name=Past+Releases]
.IP [4]
\fIhttp://www\&.tcl-lang\&.org/home/release\&.txt\fR
.IP [5]
\fIhttp://www\&.tcl-lang\&.org/software/tcllib/*\&.tml\fR
.IP [6]
\fIhttp://wiki\&.tcl-lang\&.org/1246\fR
.RE
.IP
The first location maps to the file "\fIembedded/index\&.md\fR" in the
repository itself, as such it can edited as part of the release
process\&. This is where reference to the new fossil event is added, as
the new current release\&.
.sp
The next two locations are in the fossil tcllib wiki and
require admin or wiki write permissions for
\fIhttp://core\&.tcl-lang\&.org/tcllib\fR\&.
.sp
The last two locations require ssh access to
\fIhttp://www\&.tcl-lang\&.org\fR and permission to edit
files in the web area\&.
.IP [3]
***TODO*** mailing lists and other places to send notes to\&.

<p>Welcome to Tcllib, the Tcl Standard Library. Note that Tcllib is not a
package itself. It is a collection of (semi-independent) <i class="term"><a href="../../../index.html#tcl">Tcl</a></i>
packages that provide utility functions useful to a large collection
of Tcl programmers.</p>
<p>This document is a guide for developers working on Tcllib,
i.e. maintainers fixing bugs, extending the collection's
functionality, etc.</p>
<p>Please read</p>
<ol class="doctools_enumerated">
<li><p><i class="term"><a href="tcllib_sources.html">Tcllib - How To Get The Sources</a></i> and</p></li>
<li><p><i class="term"><a href="tcllib_installer.html">Tcllib - The Installer's Guide</a></i></p></li>
</ol>
<p>first, if that was not done already.</p>
<p>Here we assume that the sources are already available in a
directory of your choice, and that you not only know how to build and
install them, but also have all the necessary requisites to actually
do so. The guide to the sources in particular also explains which
source code management system is used, where to find it, how to set it
up, etc.</p>

<div id="section2" class="doctools_section"><h2><a name="section2">Commitments</a></h2>
<div id="subsection1" class="doctools_subsection"><h3><a name="subsection1">Contributor</a></h3>
<p>As a contributor to Tcllib you are committing yourself to:</p>

<li><p>Follow the guidelines laid down in
       <i class="term"><a href="tcl_community_communication.html">Tcl Community - Kind Communication</a></i></p></li>

<ol class="doctools_enumerated">
       
<li><p>A maintainer may step down after the mandatory period as
       	      they see fit.</p></li>
<li><p>A maintainer may step down before the end of the
      	      mandatory period, under the condition that a replacement
      	      maintainer is immediatel available and has agreed to
      	      serve the remainder of the period, plus their own
      	      mandatory period (see below).</p></li>
<li><p>When stepping down without a replacement maintainer
      	      taking over the relevant packages have to be flagged as
      	      <b class="const">unmaintained</b>.</p></li>
<li><p>When a replacement mantainer is brought in for a package
      	      it is (kept) marked as <b class="const">maintained</b> (again).</p>
<p>A replacement maintainer is bound by the same rules as
	      the original maintainer, except that the mandatory
	      period of maintenance is shortened to one year.</p></li>
<li><p>For any <b class="const">unmaintained</b> package a contributor

       	      contact information, committing themselves to the rules
       	      of a replacement maintainer (see previous).</p></li>
<li><p>For any already <b class="const">maintained</b> package a contributor
       	      interested in becoming a co-maintainer can become so
       	      with the agreement of the existing maintainer(s),
       	      committing themselves to the rules of a replacement
       	      maintainer (see two above).</p></li>
</ol>
<p>The responsibilities as a maintainer include:</p>

<p>The main directories in the Tcllib toplevel directory and of interest
to a developer are:</p>
<dl class="doctools_definitions">
<dt>&quot;<b class="file">modules</b>&quot;</dt>
<dd><p>Each child directory represents one or more packages.
In the case of the latter the packages are usually related in some
way. Examples are &quot;<b class="file">base64</b>&quot;, &quot;<b class="file">math</b>&quot;, and &quot;<b class="file">struct</b>&quot;, with
loose (base64) to strong (math) relations between the packages in the
directory.</p></dd>
<dt>&quot;<b class="file">apps</b>&quot;</dt>
<dd><p>This directory contains all the installable applications, with their
documentation. Note that this directory is currently <em>not</em> split
into sub-directories.</p></dd>
<dt>&quot;<b class="file">examples</b>&quot;</dt>
<dd><p>Each child directory &quot;<b class="file">foo</b>&quot; contains one or more example
application for the packages in &quot;<b class="file">modules/foo</b>&quot;. These examples are
generally not polished enough to be considered for installation.</p></dd>

<dd><p>This directory contains the entire documentation formatted for
<i class="term"><a href="../../../index.html#html">HTML</a></i> and styled to properly mix into the web site generated by

<p>This is the documentation accessible from the Tcllib home
directory, represented in the repository as &quot;<b class="file">embedded/index.md</b>&quot;.</p></dd>
<dt>&quot;<b class="file">idoc</b>&quot;</dt>

<div id="section5" class="doctools_section"><h2><a name="section5">Testsuite Tooling</a></h2>
<p>Testsuites in Tcllib are based on Tcl's standard test package
<b class="package">tcltest</b>, plus utilities found in the directory
&quot;<b class="file">modules/devtools</b>&quot;</p>
<p>Tcllib developers invoke the suites through the
<b class="cmd">test run</b> method of the &quot;<b class="file">sak.tcl</b>&quot; tool, with other methods
of <b class="cmd"><a href="../../../index.html#test">test</a></b> providing management operations, for example setting a
list of standard Tcl shells to use.</p>
<div id="subsection7" class="doctools_subsection"><h3><a name="subsection7">Invoke the testsuites of a specific module</a></h3>
<p>Invoke either</p>
<pre class="doctools_example">  ./sak.tcl test run FOO </pre>
<p>or</p>
<pre class="doctools_example">  ./sak.tcl test run modules/FOO </pre>
<p>to invoke the testsuites found in a specific module &quot;<b class="file">FOO</b>&quot;.</p>
</div>
<div id="subsection8" class="doctools_subsection"><h3><a name="subsection8">Invoke the testsuites of all modules</a></h3>
<p>Invoke the tool without a module name, i.e.</p>
<pre class="doctools_example">  ./sak.tcl test run </pre>
<p>to invoke the testsuites of all modules.</p>
</div>
<div id="subsection9" class="doctools_subsection"><h3><a name="subsection9">Detailed Test Logs</a></h3>
<p>In all the previous examples the test runner will write a combination
of progress display and testsuite log to the standard output, showing
for each module only the tests that passed or failed and how many of
each in a summary at the end.</p>
<p>To get a detailed log, it is necessary to invoke the test
runner with additional options.</p>
<p>For one:</p>
<pre class="doctools_example">
   ./sak.tcl test run --log LOG FOO
</pre>
<p>While this shows the same short log on the terminal as before, it also
writes a detailed log to the file &quot;<b class="file">LOG.log</b>&quot;, and excerpts to
other files (&quot;<b class="file">LOG.summary</b>&quot;, &quot;<b class="file">LOG.failures</b>&quot;, etc.).</p>
<p>For two:</p>
<pre class="doctools_example">
  ./sak.tcl test run -v FOO
</pre>
<p>This writes the detailed log to the standard output, instead of the
short log.</p>
<p>Regardless of form, the detailed log contains a list of all test
cases executed, which failed, and how they failed (expected versus
actual results).</p>
</div>
<div id="subsection10" class="doctools_subsection"><h3><a name="subsection10">Shell Selection</a></h3>
<p>By default the test runner will use all the Tcl shells specified via
<b class="cmd">test add</b> to invoke the specified testsuites, if any. If no
such are specified it will fall back to the Tcl shell used to ran the
tool itself.</p>
<p>Use option <b class="option">--shell</b> to explicitly specify the Tcl shell
to use, like</p>
<pre class="doctools_example">
  ./sak.tcl test run --shell /path/to/tclsh ...
</pre>
</div>
<div id="subsection11" class="doctools_subsection"><h3><a name="subsection11">Help</a></h3>
<p>Invoke the tool as</p>
<pre class="doctools_example">  ./sak.tcl help test </pre>
<p>to see the detailed help for all methods of <b class="cmd"><a href="../../../index.html#test">test</a></b>, and the
associated options.</p>
</div>
</div>
<div id="section6" class="doctools_section"><h2><a name="section6">Documentation Tooling</a></h2>
<p>The standard format used for documentation of packages and other
things in Tcllib is <i class="term"><a href="../../../index.html#doctools">doctools</a></i>.
Its supporting packages are a part of Tcllib, see the directories
&quot;<b class="file">modules/doctools</b>&quot; and &quot;<b class="file">modules/dtplite</b>&quot;. The latter is
an application package, with the actual application
&quot;<b class="file">apps/dtplite</b>&quot; a light wrapper around it.</p>
<p>Tcllib developers gain access to these through the <b class="cmd">doc</b>
method of the &quot;<b class="file">sak.tcl</b>&quot; tool, another (internal) wrapper around
the &quot;<b class="file">modules/dptlite</b>&quot; application package.</p>
<div id="subsection12" class="doctools_subsection"><h3><a name="subsection12">Generate documentation for a specific module</a></h3>
<p>Invoke either</p>
<pre class="doctools_example">  ./sak.tcl doc html FOO </pre>
<p>or</p>
<pre class="doctools_example">  ./sak.tcl doc html modules/FOO </pre>
<p>to generate HTML for the documentation found in the module &quot;<b class="file">FOO</b>&quot;.
Instead of <b class="const">html</b> any other supported format can be used here,
of course.</p>
<p>The generated formatted documentation will be placed into a
directory &quot;<b class="file">doc</b>&quot; in the current working directory.</p>
</div>
<div id="subsection13" class="doctools_subsection"><h3><a name="subsection13">Generate documentation for all modules</a></h3>
<p>Invoke the tool without a module name, i.e.</p>
<pre class="doctools_example">  ./sak.tcl doc html </pre>
<p>to generate HTML for the documentation found in all modules.
Instead of <b class="const">html</b> any other supported format can be used here,
of course.</p>
<p>The generated formatted documentation will be placed into a
directory &quot;<b class="file">doc</b>&quot; in the current working directory.</p>
</div>
<div id="subsection14" class="doctools_subsection"><h3><a name="subsection14">Available output formats, help</a></h3>
<p>Invoke the tool as</p>
<pre class="doctools_example">  ./sak.tcl help doc </pre>
<p>to see the entire set of supported output formats which can be
generated.</p>
</div>
<div id="subsection15" class="doctools_subsection"><h3><a name="subsection15">Validation without output</a></h3>
<p>Note the special format <b class="const">validate</b>.</p>
<p>Using this value as the name of the format to generate forces
the tool to simply check that the documentation is syntactically
correct, without generating actual output.</p>
<p>Invoke it as either</p>
<pre class="doctools_example">  ./sak.tcl doc validate (modules/)FOO </pre>
<p>or</p>
<pre class="doctools_example">  ./sak.tcl doc validate </pre>
<p>to either check the packages of a specific module or check all of
them.

<p>The first location maps to the file &quot;<b class="file">embedded/index.md</b>&quot; in the
repository itself, as such it can edited as part of the release
process. This is where reference to the new fossil event is added, as
the new current release.</p>
<p>The next two locations are in the fossil tcllib wiki and
require admin or wiki write permissions for
