After getting BASICtools running on Linux Mint, I had a Raspberry Pi sitting next to my PC. We already knew the USB serial drivers worked, so why not give it a try.
If the standard install on the Pi, included Libre Office, why not BASICtools too.
So copied all the Tcl files over (that all runs natively) after installing tk
- sudo apt-get install tk
Wasn't sure if there was a package for gpp, but turns it is there too
- sudo apt-get install gpp
- cd gpp/src
- sudo ./configure & make & make install
Then compile the BASIC compiler for the Pi (source not distributed yet, it's a work in progress getting ready for a new product)
- gcc -DLINUX -m32 winBASIC.c -lm
Copy the executable into the Coridium directory
And the result --- it works
Again I am still no Linux guy, though I did create a shell script to install in /usr/bin
cd ~/Coridium wish BASICtools.tcl &
- chmod +x BT.sh
- sudo cp BT.sh /usr/bin/.
So now I can just type BT.sh to launch. I guess there are ways to create a Desktop icon. I still don't know how to create an icon for a TclTk program while running, nor do I really know where the files should be copied to. Any Linux gurus out, all tips appreciated.
