ANN: Tcl-Tk-Aqua 8.4.14 "universal" installer for OS X
The Tcl/Tk "Universal" packages are distributions of the core Tcl/Tk
libraries, plus the Tile theming extension, built to support the PPC and
Intel architectures of the Mac OS X platforms. They can be downlaoded at

The Tcl/Tk "Universal" package for Mac OS X are based on the current
version of Tcl/Tk at the time of this build, 8.4.14. The Tile extension
is version 0.7.8. The packages support the native Aqua version.
The "Aqua" package supports the native Mac windowing environment. It is
useful for developing and deploying native Mac OS X applications. With
the "Aqua" package, the following will be installed on your machine:
* The Tcl and Tk frameworks will be installed in /Library/Frameworks.
* The Tcl interpreter, tclsh, and the Tk interpreter, wish, will be
installed in /usr/local/bin.
* The Tile extension, which adds native Aqua theming to the Tk widgets,
will be installed in /Library/Tcl.
* The Wish application package will be installed in /Applications/Utilities.
A standalone version of Wish, with the Tcl/Tk and Tile libraries
embedded in the application package, will be installed in
/Applications/Utilities/Wish-Embedded. This package is useful for
deploying Tcl/Tk applications to end users.The Tcl/Tk "Universal"
packages are distributions of the core Tcl/Tk libraries, plus the Tile
theming extension, built to support the PPC and Intel architectures of
the Mac OS X platforms.

The "Welcome to comp.lang.tcl" message by Andreas Kupries
comp.lang.tcl is a crucial resource for Tcl practitioners.
An interesting perspective on its traffic appears at
The Tcl Developer Site is Tcl's "home base".
Larry Virden maintains a comp.lang.tcl FAQ launcher.
The Tcl Developer Xchange is a highly organized resource center
of documents and software with provisions for individuals to
maintain references to their own software:
The TDX sponsor, ActiveState, also keeps info to convince your
boss Tcl is a good thing
The Tcl'ers Wiki is a huge, dynamic, collaboratively edited repository
of documentation, examples, tutorials and pontifications on all things
For the ideal overview of the topics about Tcl most likely to
interest a newcomer, see "Arts and Crafts ..."
There's also a high-quality Wikibook on Tcl:
ActiveState maintains binaries distribution and development tools
along with a Cookbook of Tcl recipes
deli.cio.us presents an intriguing approach to reference commentary.
It already aggregates quite a bit of Tcl intelligence.
Cameron Laird tracks several Tcl/Tk references of interest (but
needs to validate many of the links).
Years ago, Cetus Links maintained a Tcl/Tk page with verified links
"Yahoo! Groups" archives comp.lang.tcl.announce posts--even
though clta itself is dormant.
We're working on more useful archives of past installments. In the
meantime, an alternative is
