Tcltexed Homepage         german

Tcltexed is a "simple" text editor I created in innumerable hours of work, which is based on the script language Tcl/Tk. I especially adapted it to the needs of a LaTeX addict (my humble self of course), but some of my friend's ideas were also implemented, so I think I programmed something which might be useful to the public.

What can Tcltexed do?

Whoever feels the need to thank me can buy me something nonalcoholic. Apart from that: this product ... no pricetag.

Stability and Bugs

Meanwhile there are hardly any incidents. However, should faults in Tcltexed occur, please let me know about them. I can do nothing about crashes of the interpreter, but they are even rarer than simple programming bugs from my part.

Why I undertook the effort?

... oh don't blame him, please. If I would have writen the text by my own it would be much worse.
