VTK5.0 binaries

Marcio Antonio Mathias
Hi,
Are there a good reason for  the VTK5.0 binaries were statically linked to Tcl/Tk and not  dinamic  linked?

/Marcio.


Relax. Yahoo! Mail virus scanning helps detect nasty viruses!

Re: VTK5.0 binaries

The reason is so there would be no dependency on Tcl/Tk dlls, and so
that vtk.exe could be run on any Windows machine as is (from a CD even),
without any problems, even if there is no Tcl/Tk installed or a
different version of Tcl/Tk installed.

Whether the reason is good or not is a matter of opinion, I suppose...

:-)
