NAME
       pkg::create - Construct an appropriate 'package ifneeded' command for a

       spec? ... ?-source filespec? ...

DESCRIPTION
       ::pkg::create  is  a utility procedure that is part of the standard Tcl
       library.  It is used to create an appropriate package ifneeded  command
       for  a  given  package  specification.   It  can be used to construct a
       pkgIndex.tcl file for use with the package mechanism.


OPTIONS
       The parameters supported are:

       -name packageName
              This parameter  specifies  the  name  of  the  package.   It  is
              required.

       -version packageVersion
              This  parameter  specifies  the  version  of the package.  It is
              required.

       -load filespec
              This parameter specifies a binary library that  must  be  loaded
              with  the  load  command.  filespec is a list with two elements.
              The first element is the name of the file to load.  The  second,
              optional  element is a list of commands supplied by loading that
              file.   If  the  list  of  procedures  is  empty   or   omitted,
              ::pkg::create  will  set  up the library for direct loading (see
              pkg_mkIndex).  Any number of -load parameters may be specified.

       -source filespec
              This parameter is similar to the -load parameter, except that it
              specifies a Tcl library that must be loaded with the source com-
              mand.  Any number of -source parameters may be specified.

       At least one -load or -source parameter must be given.
