It surprises me that vote is in progress. I thought that a reference
implementation was supposed to be provided before voting.
Am I missing something??

Just so people know, I knew about this work when I did the CFV. The
primary requirement for things in this tranche of voting was that
either an implementation had been demonstrated or would be
"trivial" (#323 got its vote on this basis). Other TIPs looked to be
in a good state, but were implementation-free and so it is unclear
whether we could have them done by the 8.6 feature freeze.

Donal.

Is this TDBC package available for testing? If so, do you have a link
to the download page?

TIA!

I usually strictly adhere to Tcl (and sql) and keep myself as far away from
C as I possibly can.
However I would really like to have a look at tdbc, so I will have to
compile it and I would appreciate some help:
I use Mingw32/MSYS in combination with ActiveTcl8.5.4.0.286921 followed by
"teacup update" on Win XP platform (sp3).
Could someone please confirm that this could be a succesfull combination to
compile tdbc?
Sofar I tried:
$ ./configure --with-tclconfig=/c/Progra~1/tcl/8.5/lib/tcl8.5
checking for correct TEA configuration... ok (TEA 3.6)
checking for cygpath... echo
checking for Tcl configuration... found
/c/Progra~1/tcl/8.5/lib/tcl8.5/tclConfig.sh
checking for existence of /c/Progra~1/tcl/8.5/lib/tcl8.5/tclConfig.sh...
loading
checking for tcloo configuration... configure: WARNING: Cannot find tcloo
configuration definitions

I do have tcloo through teacup, but it doesn't seem to work in tcl as well:
package require TclOO
couldn't load library "c:/program
files/tcl/8.5/lib/teapot/package/win32-ix86/lib/TclOO0.5.1/TclOO051.dll":
invalid argument
while executing
"load {c:/program
files/tcl/8.5/lib/teapot/package/win32-ix86/lib/TclOO0.5.1/TclOO051.dll}
TclOO"
("package ifneeded TclOO 0.5.1" script)
invoked from within
"package require TclOO"
("uplevel" body line 1)
invoked from within
"uplevel #0 {package require TclOO}"

Please don't bash me for using the "Program Files\" directory, there is
really no other choice for me.
I removed the repository and reinstalled Tcl, with the same result. Other
extensions do load correctly. Is this a bug in the Activestate distribution?
Is there a workaround? Or maybe I should compile TclOO manually as well?
Thanks,
Harm Olthof

This looks to be more an ActiveTcl issue than a TDBC issue - it appears
that TclOO isn't quite installed correctly. Maybe Jeff or Andreas can
comment?

As far as finding the headers, you can make one more small step toward
getting the compilation to go by adding --with-tcloo=/path/to/dir
where the given directory is the one that contains tclOO.h.

Ok thanks, and since Activestate doesn't provide de tclOO.h, I will have to
compile TclOO anyhow. I tried that allready and then find I will need Tcl
sources as well, because the compiling process of TclOO complains it can't
find tclInt.h, even if I set the source environment variable to the include
directory of my Tcl installation. I guess I'll better download the latest
Tcl 8.6, then at least I don't have to compile TclOO seperatedly...
And maybe I should file a bug about Activestate's TclOO version.
