QOTW: "[A]utomatic growth doesn't have the dilemma of the gaps." - D. G. Porter
Adrian aptly illustrates the principle that Tcl can be made
to look the way one wants with a quick <<Modified>>-based
hack to endow a text with a textvariable:
Thanks to Arjen Markus for his (mostly) weekly summary of Wiki action:
Just one more week to the European Tclers' Meeting ...
A bunch of tools
- Inspecting variables in a running Tk program, using an external
browser ... an old tool resurfaces: <http://wiki.tcl.tk/9154>
- How difficult is it to compute the disk space? Do you
need external tools or not? Quite a discussion on
- Gnocl is steadily expanding: new tools, new widgets ...
Here are a ruler, a calendar and a curve widget:
- A GUI testing tool ... Android is getting some attention
- Will this summer project solve a long-standing wish?
An extensive discussion of printer support:
A few shells
- The graphical user shell "gush" is now neatly documented
on the Wiki: <http://wiki.tcl.tk/23446>
- Toward a Tcl-only desktop environment - less fanciful than you
might think: <http://wiki.tcl.tk/10719> and <http://wiki.tcl.tk/23597>

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
