nam fails to open, complaining about an unusable tk.tcl file. It seems to be pointing out errors in the provided tk.tcl script present at /usr/lib/tk8.6/tk.tcl.

/usr/lib/tk8.6/tk.tcl: wrong # args: should be "source fileName"
wrong # args: should be "source fileName"
    while executing
"source -encoding utf-8 /usr/lib/tk8.6/icons.tcl"
    (in namespace eval "::" script line 1)
    invoked from within
"namespace eval :: [list source -encoding utf-8 [file join $::tk_library $file.tcl]]"
    (procedure "SourceLibFile" line 2)
    invoked from within
"SourceLibFile icons"
    (in namespace eval "::tk" script line 2)
    invoked from within
"namespace eval ::tk {
    SourceLibFile icons
    SourceLibFile button
    SourceLibFile entry
    SourceLibFile listbox
    SourceLibFile menu
    SourceLibFile panedw..."
    (file "/usr/lib/tk8.6/tk.tcl" line 501)
    invoked from within
"source.orig /usr/lib/tk8.6/tk.tcl"
    ("uplevel" body line 1)
    invoked from within
"uplevel source.orig [list $fileName]"
    invoked from within
"if [$instance_ is_http_url $fileName] {
set buffer [$instance_ read_url $fileName]
uplevel eval $buffer
} else {
uplevel source.orig [list $fileName]
    (procedure "source" line 8)
    invoked from within
"source /usr/lib/tk8.6/tk.tcl"
    ("uplevel" body line 1)
    invoked from within
"uplevel #0 [list source $file]"

This probably means that tk wasn't installed properly.

@elv: Thanks for letting me know. It should be working again now.

Doesn't build with g++ 6.1.1.
However, I managed to build it with clang.

@sergio.correia , you're right, after recompilation of otcl, tclcl, nam is working, thanks :)

@SchrodingerCat: it seems to work on my end. Did you try recompiling otcl, tclcl and nam after updating to the newer tcl 8.6.3 package?

Hey, i think this can't work anymore because of Tcl 8.6.3 and this nam need exactly 8.6.2. At the nam runtime i got "[code omitted because of length]
: version conflict for package "Tcl": have 8.6.3, need exactly 8.6.2
while executing
"package require -exact Tcl 8.6.2""

i don't know how to make it works :/
