Jeff and Gerald render the canvas coordinate system more conventional:
Thanks to Arjen Markus for his (mostly) weekly summary of Wiki action:
On a day like this one can not really trust anything, so be warned.
(If we fall victim of some April Fool's day joke, then your
chronicler is the first one to fall!)
One picture says more ...
- Since it is the first day of a new month, do have a look at
Tcl3D's monthly demos: <http://wiki.tcl.tk/17771>
- Scripting the GIMP is made easy: no need to learn Lisp,
just plain Tcl will do: <http://wiki.tcl.tk/11232>
- Beautiful pictures as a result of visualising the ever-inspiring
prime numbers: <http://wiki.tcl.tk/23052> and <http://wiki.tcl.tk/23050>
Two or more pictures ...
- What if you have a pictures that does not comfortably fit on a single
sheet of paper, but you do need it in a PostScript file? Well,
use multiple pages then: <http://wiki.tcl.tk/23061>
- Glade is one of the GUI builders available for Gtk. With this
code it becomes easy to use it in gnocl: <http://wiki.tcl.tk/23040>
- Exotic fonts do not need to be installed on the system for you
to use them in a Tk GUI. Here is how: <http://wiki.tcl.tk/22262>
Just words ...
- Expect keeps amazing us all. When applied properly, it is
simply magic. A quick update: <http://wiki.tcl.tk/3913>

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
