Please post the command you issued, the location of your mp3 files and the exact error message. –  Frantique Dec 18 '12 at 9:10
@Frantique files located at ~/desktop/vectors and command issued wish rateconvs.tcl {rateconvs.tcl tcl script located in same directory as mp3 files} error just show segmentation fault –  Dave Dec 18 '12 at 13:59
Really hard to debug, it works for me... You have rights to write in that directory? –  Frantique Dec 19 '12 at 11:05
@Frantique Yes , i have write access. –  Dave Dec 19 '12 at 14:06
Try to use some debugging data to get more info about the crash. How? Take a look here: wiki.tcl.tk/473 –  Frantique Dec 20 '12 at 8:06
