Need TCL pkg for arch (manjaro)

Need TCL pkg for arch (manjaro)

I recently changed from ubuntu 20.04 to manjaro. On ubuntu I had cloned the sqlite repository and installed tcl-dev with 'sudo apt install tcl-dev'. This allowed me always to have the latest trunk code available.

I've cloned the sqlite repository on manjaro but there's no simple tcl-dev to install. There are tcl pkgs available for Arch on pkgs.org but I've no idea if they'll suffice. I remember when I was installing on ubuntu that installing tcl was insufficient, it had to be tcl-dev.

Is anyone else using arch / manjaro linux who can tell me how to get this set up?

This thread is off-topic for this forum.

The guidance at https://www.tcl.tk/doc/howto/compile.html is likely to resolve your difficulty if followed. I have found it adequate for its nominal purpose.

Thanks Larry. Will try it tomorrow.

It turned out all I needed to do was run 'sudo pacman -Syu tcl' in terminal.
