load the package library index of a .tlib library file
Loads the package library index of the library file
libfile (which must have the suffix
.tlib). Package library indexes along the
auto_path are loaded automatically on the first
demand_load; this command is provided to
explicitly load libraries that are not in the path. If the
index file (with a .tndx suffix) does not exist
or is out of date, it is rebuilt if the user has directory
permissions to create it. If a package with the same name
as a package in libfile.tlib has
already been loaded, its definition is overridden by the
new package. However, if any procedure has actually been
used from the previously defined package, the procedures
from libfile.tlib are not loaded.
This command also loads an index built by the
mkindex.tcl program supplied with standard Tcl.
This file must be named ``tclIndex''.
