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 com-
	      mand.  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 load-
	      ing 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 command.  Any number of -source parame-
	      ters may be specified.

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