QOTW: "[upvar #1] will become quite popular too if coroutines take off."
"With coroutines, I predict that [upvar #1] will also become popular." -
Miguel Sofer and Kevin Kenny, in nominally disjoint conversations
Behold: TkCocoa is among you:
Thanks to Arjen Markus for his (mostly) weekly summary of Wiki action:
With spring firmly in the air - or at least the meteorological
calendar for the northern hemisphere, let us begin by this
reference to a page collecting Tcl/Tk GUIs:
GUI stuff from the Wiki
- In a more conventional spot: the announcement of a Gtk-based Tcl shell
- <http://wiki.tcl.tk/22110>. The screenshot is cute :)
- Scrolling multiple widgets in sync is quite doable, as shown
in this page - <http://wiki.tcl.tk/9254>
- Quite often it is easy to adapt an existing widget to your
needs, like this checkbox that takes only logical (boolean) values -
Interfaces to packages
- Need to deal with PDF files from Tcl? This page collects a lot of
- You never know what Bayesian networks you may encounter, but be
assured that this interface will let you deal with (some of) them
- Build scripts seem to get more and more complicated. Here is
a package to examine Ant build scripts - <http://wiki.tcl.tk/22630>
- Bernoulli is the affectionate name for a package that lets you deal
with ordinary differential equations via a GUI or a small set of
easy commands. You can even chose if it should be Tcl-only. Check
out <http://wiki.tcl.tk/22631> and <http://wiki.tcl.tk/22639>.
For humans only
- Here is a typical example of using Expect to make your computers
do what needs to be done: <http://wiki.tcl.tk/22702>
- Lots of documentation now available for NaviServer. Check for
- The Tcl Association has entered the publishing business:
<http://wiki.tcl.tk/22641> - in a limited way
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 TÃ©cleux" 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. Dave
Williams generously is building up
and of course Google gives us
