Install Wrapped Script
Previous Topic  Next Topic 

This action takes a Tcl/Tk script and wraps it into a self-contained binary executable on the target system.


Technical Detail

The .tcl script is wrapped with the same installkit that built the installer.  It uses the internal installkit::wrap command to wrap the script into its own executable.
