This is what I'm using:
ii tcl8.4 8.4.2-1 Tcl (the Tool Command Language) v8.4 - run-t
ii expect 5.38.0-5 A program that "talks" to other programs
ii dejagnu 1.4.3-0.1 framework for running test suites on softwar
These packages are almost certainly newer than the minimum
requirements, and I do not know what the minimum requirements are.
On another machine where it also works, the package versions are
8.3.3-74, 5.38.0-74, and 1.4.2-6. I do not want to tell people that
they have to upgrade needlessly.
I did not invent scan-assembler-times; it was already in scanasm.exp.
It was added in revision 1.9 by Zdenek Dvorak. Perhaps he can tell us
what the minimum required versions are.
