In the 8.1.1 release of Tcl/Tk, there is a new
socket driver for NT. It uses WSAEventSelect
and a thread instead of creating a window. I've
run the test suite on it, and it's working, but
someone else has reported that it's hanging
in event.test with VC++ 6.0.

If anyone out there is interested in testing
the NT socket driver, use the CVS repository
to get the following two files:


You want to use the "core-8-1-1" tag:

cvs update -r core-8-1-1 ...

-- Scott

p.s. The driver uses the old model for Win95/98.
The WinSock2 driver on Win98 acts differently
and we didn't have the time (or the debugger) to
get it to work on Win98. Win95 doesn't always
have WinSock2, but if it did it probably would
suffer from the same problems that Win98 does.

I just tested the core-8-1-1 tag and had no problems with the VC6.0
compiler. I used the 12.00.8168 version of the compiler and the
6.00.8168 version of the linker on an NT 4.0 system patched to level

This is the result of nmake -f makefile.vc test. As you see, everything
is fine.
