source the Tcl rc file 

Tcl Library Procedures


#include <tcl.h>

void Tcl_SourceRCFile(interp)


Tcl_Interp *interp (in) 

Tcl interpreter to source rc file into.


Tcl_SourceRCFile() is used to source the Tcl rc file at startup. It is typically invoked by Tcl_Main or Tk_Main. The name of the file sourced is obtained from the global variable tcl_rcFileName in the interpreter given by interp. If this variable is not defined, or if the file it indicates cannot be found, no action is taken.

On the Macintosh, after sourcing the rc file, this function will additionally source the TEXT resource indicated by the global variable tcl_rcRsrcName in interp.
