I must confess that to me it has always been TCL rather
than tickle, and any feathers have always been on an arrow
rather than in an inkpot. Sometimes said arrow has been
embedded in my foot... Dave Joubert on c.l.t
ANNOUNCE: Windows Inspection Tool Set 2.1 Beta
WiTS provides you with cross-linked, filtered views
of a Windows system. These views include customizable
list views with optional filtering and sorting
capabilities, and detailed property page views for
individual objects. Where applicable, views are linked
to allow for easy navigation between related objects.
In addition to viewing properties, WiTS provides tools
for some common tasks related to these components.
WiTS also includes a configurable event monitor that
can notify you of various events like new network
connections, process starts and exits, service state
changes, system resource exhaustion and more. Events are
displayed on-screen and optionally logged to a file.

Thanks to Arjen Markus for his weekly summary of Wiki action:
Another week has passed - time surely flies and therefore
the European conference comes closer and closer ...
People meeting people
- The page on the Conference in October has been updated:
- The first meeting this year is in June though: <http://wiki.tcl.tk/21074>
- And the Google summer of Code seems to be filled with ideas:
Just ask ...
- Discussions on the Tcl Core list inspired this little gem:
<http://wiki.tcl.tk/21095> does implicit upvars and is careful
not to create new variables.
- Writing package index scripts is not quite as straightforward
as it may seem. But luckily we have guidelines:
- With Tcl having a strong tradition in testing, your chronicler
thought a little excursion into the world of "orthogonal arrays"
might be useful. The example could be more useful, but the
message ought to be clear - <http://wiki.tcl.tk/21091>
Just watch or play ...
- It may take a genius to come with a script like this, but
anybody can watch the trains pass! <http://wiki.tcl.tk/1359>
- Networking may be a popular buzzword in the world of management,
but in the end you simply need a connection between two points.

Everything Tcl-related you want is probably one or two clicks away in these
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
"La Gazette du Técleux" is an important monthly publication.
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
