Comment 1 Jens Petersen 2003-05-08 21:01:35 EDT
Can you explainly more carefully how to reproduce this, please?

I see:

~% tclsh
% ctype
invalid command name "ctype"
% ctype digit 1
invalid command name "ctype"
Comment 2 Kyle Bateman 2003-05-09 00:00:51 EDT
Looks like ctype is part of tclX (not standard tcl) so you have to use "tcl" not
"tclsh" to see the right error.  If that doesn't work, try the shell script:

ctype digit 1

Comment 3 Jens Petersen 2003-05-09 01:24:29 EDT
Thanks, reproduced.
Comment 4 Jens Petersen 2004-02-26 02:06:41 EST
Seems to be fixed with tcl-8.3.5-1 in FC devel.
Comment 5 Jens Petersen 2004-02-26 23:11:09 EST
tclx-8.3.5-1, I mean.
