Proposed fix for tcl 8.6 compatibility

Description Ian Abbott 2013-01-18 11:39:03 UTC
After applying a patch to fix bug #441036, the build of insight-6.8.1 got a bit further until it hit an incompatibility with tcl 8.6.

./gdbtk/generic/gdbtk.c: In function 'gdbtk_init':
./gdbtk/generic/gdbtk.c:496:47: error: 'Tcl_Interp' has no member named 'result'
./gdbtk/generic/gdbtk.c:500:59: error: 'Tcl_Interp' has no member named 'result'
./gdbtk/generic/gdbtk.c:503:46: error: 'Tcl_Interp' has no member named 'result'
./gdbtk/generic/gdbtk.c:506:51: error: 'Tcl_Interp' has no member named 'result'
./gdbtk/generic/gdbtk.c:562:51: error: 'Tcl_Interp' has no member named 'result'
./gdbtk/generic/gdbtk.c: In function 'tk_command':
./gdbtk/generic/gdbtk.c:742:33: error: 'Tcl_Interp' has no member named 'result'

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Upgrade dev-lang/tcl and dev-lang/tk to version >=8.6.
2. If using glibc-2.16, change insight-6.8.1 ebuild to apply patch from bug #441036.
3. emerge -1 =dev-util/insight-6.8.1
Actual Results:  
Build fails with:

./gdbtk/generic/gdbtk.c: In function 'gdbtk_init':
./gdbtk/generic/gdbtk.c:496:47: error: 'Tcl_Interp' has no member named 'result'
./gdbtk/generic/gdbtk.c:500:59: error: 'Tcl_Interp' has no member named 'result'
./gdbtk/generic/gdbtk.c:503:46: error: 'Tcl_Interp' has no member named 'result'
./gdbtk/generic/gdbtk.c:506:51: error: 'Tcl_Interp' has no member named 'result'
./gdbtk/generic/gdbtk.c:562:51: error: 'Tcl_Interp' has no member named 'result'
./gdbtk/generic/gdbtk.c: In function 'tk_command':
./gdbtk/generic/gdbtk.c:742:33: error: 'Tcl_Interp' has no member named 'result'

Need to replace interp->result with Tcl_GetStringResult(interp).  Direct use of interp->result is now forbidden - see .

Proposed fix for tcl 8.6 compatibility

Uses `TCL_GetStringResult(interp)` instead of `interp->result` as an rvalue.

Uses `TCL_SetResult(interp, "string", TCL_STATIC)` instead of `interp->result = "string"` in the one place where `interp->result` is assigned directly.

Direct access to interp->result is forbidden by tcl-8.6.

The above changes should be compatible with tcl-8.0 or later.

The patch should be applied *after* the main bundle of patches from "insight-6.8.1-patchset-01.tar.xz". (A patch for the glibc-2.16 incompatibilty from bug #441036 is also likely to be required.)
