QOTW: "I've worked besides auto mechanics, physicist and doctors. It's hard
to tell them apart." - Steve Redler, on the experimentalist mentality
Ralf, WavyDavy, et al. show how to measure and improve performance,
in this case specifically in regard to networking:
libmsgqueue2.8 boasts asynchronous service:
Thanks to Arjen Markus for his (mostly) weekly summary of Wiki action:
Last week's Wiki activities gravitate around people, with bits and
pieces of technical stuff floating by. Let the summary begin!
Technical bits and pieces
- Won't it ever cease, the stream of OO-extensions to Tcl?
No criticism from your chronicler! It simply amazed him:
<http://wiki.tcl.tk/22732> for yet another approach
- INI-files (yes, those unruly collections of settings) are
perfectly handled via dictionaries - <http:/wiki.tcl.tk/22717>
- Keep those HTTP servers tiny, please: yet another minimalistic
stream has cast a new member: <http://wiki.tcl.tk/22638>
- There are a good many online tutorials for Tcl and Tk. Here
is an overview: <http://wiki.tcl.tk/20796>
- We are very creative with ideas that could be implemented
this summer, but some structure is required: somebody
must take responsability - <http://wiki.tcl.tk/22713>
- Are you a beginner? And by beginner we do mean beginner?

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
