Unicode encodings

Tclkit has always been distributed with only a few Unicode encoding definition files in it. This was a compromise to reduce the executable size (from 1.4 Mb to 1 Mb) yet be good enough for many common Western languages.

That does not do justice to other parts of the world, so here are instructions on how to create a modified Tclkit with all encodings Tcl knows about.

You will need three things:

  • the Tclkit binary you wish to modify
  • a copy of SDX (and matching Tclkit if cross-building)
  • a directory with all encodings you wish to add

The encodings can be obtained from a Tcl source code download (unpack and look in the library/encoding/ directory).

Below is a transcript (on Linux) of the steps needed to add all encodings:

I assume that similar steps are also what would be needed on Windows.
