Re: package command sloow

the following pkgIndex.tcl file takes some seconds for the first

A simple "catch {package require pkgB}" or "source [file join $dir
pkgb.tcl]" is fast. Is there a better way to go?

Yes, if you can influence your Tcl installation. Don't put your packages
into /usr/lib/..., the standard package command scans all subdirs of
/usr/lib for pkgIndex.tcl files...
Tcl modules (for Tcl 8.5) reduce some of this time too.
