Terms and Status
PLEASE NOTE: BrowseX comes with NO warranty.
There is a new unified packaging format that delivers BrowseX as
a standalone executable. You no longer need to install Tcl/Tk.
This uses a bit more memory, but is vastly easier to install/manage.
Binaries in the new format is provided only for Linux and Win32 at the moment.
The Linux port was developed under Redhat 7.0. The Windows version
was cross compiled from Linux using Mingw32.
Current release is 2.0.0. See ChangeLog for list of changes.
The new packaging format allows BrowseX to be distributed as a single
For Windows, just run the .exe to invoke the installer. The package contains
a single executable, but the adds BrowseX to your Program menu.
For unix, just do:
gunzip -c brx.linux.bin-2.0.0.gz > brx
chmod u+x brx
If you like, you can extract the Tcl scripts from the executable with:
ln -s brx brx.zip
Compiling From Source
Here is the source brx.src-1.6.0.tar.gz.
: 13 Meg.
You will require nearly 200 Meg of disk space in order to build it.
Directions are provided in the README and BUILD file included.
The source is amalgamated into a single tree, and now builds
the standalone from a single Makefile under Linux. Other unix platforms
may also work. The Windows build is still manual and suitably miserable
as most Windows experiences are for developers.
The unified source tree also does include the Tcl and Tk 8.4a2 source code.
