With the northern hemisphere's summer approaching the GSoC projects
are attracting attention on the Wiki ... A new flavour of regular
Wiki pros and cons
- A new feature has been added to the Wiki: you can add comments to
a page. See: <http://wiki.tcl.tk/19613>

debate at <http://wiki.tcl.tk/23759>
- Here is a discussion on the methodology one can use for
creating Tcl/Tk applications - <http://wiki.tcl.tk/23752>

the apropos command - <http://wiki.tcl.tk/2066>
(http://wiki.tcl.tk/207> for an overview)
- Interested in the future of these commands or the package as
a whole? <http://wiki.tcl.tk/11563>

- Processes under Linux reveal their numerical properties:
- Cleaning up the regular expressions engine is a project that

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.
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
