Arrow bcprogtool.tcl Beta for Mac OS X 10.4+, Windows 98/XP/Vista?/7 & Linux

This TCL/Tk script will control & program your BC346XT & BCT15X

You need to have TCL/TK Version 8.5 installed. Windows users can download it from Active State
http://www.activestate.com/activetcl/

Linux Users should use their package manager to install: tcl tk wish tcllib

Mac OS X Tiger & Leopard Users can install TCL/TK using
http://www.categorifiedcoder.info/tcltk/

Tcl/Tk Aqua 8.5 Binaries full Version 8.5.7
do not use the TclTkAqua Standalone version

Snow Leopard TCL/TK 8.5 is already installed.

Once you have TCL/Tk installed find out what serial port you use:
Mac OS X Install USB - Serial Port Drivers and plug in the device & Setup
In Terminal: ls -l /dev/cu.*

Windows use the device manager

Linux
ls -l /dev/ttyS? && ls -l /dev/ttyUS*

Once you have the serial port information download the program

http://home.comcast.net/~kilowattradio/bcprogtool.zip

unzip in your Home directory

Linux & Mac OS X
/usr/bin/wish ~/bcprogtool/bcprogtool.tcl

Mac OS X users can also double-click
startmac.command
to start bcprogtool.tcl in the Finder.

Windows
in Explorer go to the bcprogtool folder and double click bcprogtool.tcl


Read & Follow the instructions, setup the serial port communications
in the setup window. Then press the Connect button.

See the bcprogtool/setup folder for screen shots that will give examples of using the program.

This is free software released under the GPL. The file test.tcl is NOT GPL and is copyrighted software.

Please post or send me bug reports so I can fix them.

Are you going to put this info on your website, Keith? If not, then I'd suggest making a wiki article for this. There's a fair amount of technical info here that will eventually scroll off the forum....73 Mike

Well it is still just Beta I have to write the portion of the script that handles loading conventional system files. I will have a regular web page probably after the Christmas holidays.

Keith, is there any chance the Mac OS X Tiger software would work with a BCD396XT? It doesn't sound like it, but I wanted to double check anyway. Regardless, kudos to you for making your program compatible with Mac OS X Tiger! Thank you for thinking about Mac users!
