QOTW: "[I know] no better definition for 'TEA' than 'configures, makes, and
installs on aku's machine'." - Kevin Kenny
Debugging versions, optimized versions, ...: the combinatorics are
more recondite than at first appears:
ZB and Bryan Oakley argue in favor of widgets being allowed to
Thanks to Arjen Markus for his (mostly) weekly summary of Wiki action:
April 1 passed without much incident - now we only have to survive
those Easter eggs ...
Of speeches, books and trees
- Does anyone have good suggestions for a presentation on Tcl/Tk?
Or do you want to get into a discussion on Tk versus Ttk versus
gnocl versus ...? Here is your chance: <http://wiki.tcl.tk/23125>
- Menus as trees as nested lists ... yes, that is the right
title for this page. <http://wiki.tcl.tk/23115> contains
some nice animations and a nice application of nested lists.
Its companion <http://wiki.tcl.tk/8580> shows other uses.
- Trees of a tangible kind will probably go into the publication
of this book's second edition: <http://wiki.tcl.tk/103>. But
you will have a chance to show off your code in a CO2-neutral
Of traces, encryption and indentation
- An entertaining discussion over the details of traces:
- A simple kind of encryption, even a layman can understand
this one: <http://wiki.tcl.tk/23095>

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.
Tcl Developer Xchange sponsor, ActiveState, keeps info to
onvince 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
