Abstract

[130] provides for unique DDE server name registration. This TIP renames one of the options it defines to better reflect its behaviour.

Rationale

The dde extension, as modified by [130], includes an option -exact to force the name to be that specified. This TIP proposes to change this options name to -force which better reflects its purpose. As [130] has only just been implemented, now is the time to make this change before it is is included in any public release of Tcl.
