Tablelist 4.3

Hello everybody!

I have downloaded the  Tablelist 4.3 from

Now I want to install it on my system Win XP.

>From the distribution I have got the following information:
On Windows, use WinZip or some other program capable of unpacking the 
distribution file into the directory tablelist4.3, with the 
subdirectories demos, doc, and scripts.

Note that the file tablelistEdit.tcl in the scripts directory is only needed 
for applications making use of interactive cell editing.  Similarly, the 
file tablelistMove.tcl in the same directory is only required for scripts 
invoking the move or movecolumn command.  Finally, the file 
tablelistThemes.tcl is only needed for applications using the package 
Tablelist_tile (see next section).

Next, you should check the exact version number of your Tcl/Tk distribution, 
given by the tcl_patchLevel and tk_patchLevel variables.  If you are using 
Tcl/Tk version 8.2.X, 8.3.0 - 8.3.2, or 8.4a1, then you should upgrade your 
Tcl/Tk distribution to a higher release.  This is because a bug in these Tcl 
versions (fixed in Tcl 8.3.3 and 8.4a2) causes excessive memory use when 
calling  info exists  on non-existent array elements, and Tablelist makes a 
lot of invocations of this command.


But I don't know who to do it.
I have copied the files to my python directory. By calling the package I get 
an error.
Would somebody please so kind and explain me the installtion step by step. 
E.g. Where to copy the files?, Who can I obtain the tcl_patchLevel 
information?, How can I invoke the tableliste in a python programm.

Thank you!
