It is not quite clear what you are speaking of. The OS/2 port of tcl is free,
of course. The X-W tools, on the other hand, are a part of IBM's suite of
TCP/IP kits for OS/2. You need the X-Client and X-Server kits plus (possibly)
the Motif kit. They can be gotten from Indelible Blue for $140 each. I am not
aware of any free port of the X library to OS/2.
