I need to download EXPECT package using teacup on my ubuntu client.

I have installed Active Tcl 8.5. I also have installed EXPECT for LINUX.

But, I don't have EXPECT package to work with Tcl Dev Kit.

Can someone tell me in details on how can I get teacup working in order to download EXPECT package?

Thank you in advance

teacup is part of ActiveTcl. In ubuntu 10.04

wget && tar -zxvf ActiveTcl8. && cd ActiveTcl8. && sudo ./
$ /opt/ActiveTcl-8.5/bin/teacup version

./teacup or /opt/ActiveTcl-8.5/bin/teacup or export PATH=$PATH:/opt/ActiveTcl-8.5/bin/ – bindbn Sep 30 '10 at 15:12
