QOTW: "Every time I use my company's Wiki, I realise how easy it is to use
the Tclers' Wiki ...." - Arjen Markus
Harald Oehlmann leads us to BWidget 1.9:
In our (successful!) attempts to be lightweight and flexible with
Tcl, we occasionally lose track of how packages look when a newcomer
first opens the wrapping. JMN and Larry Virden give the essential
advice on how to make "package register $desired_package" work for
Little improvements or implementations in Tcl can enormously benefit
EDA or other applications which expose Tcl as a scripting interface:
The same thread, incidentally, mentions aids to work with regexps.
1.0b12 of TDBC:
Not only is WS::Client correct and useful for Web Service workers, but
its support is swift and helpful:
Thanks to Arjen Markus for his (mostly) weekly summary of Wiki action:
As you will probably have noticed: the deadline for the Sixteenth
Annual Tcl/Tk Conference is approaching. So: time to finish that
abstract and send it off!
Last year's ...
- Wiki gnoming has brought up a lot of older pages, such the
presentations from last year's conference: <http://wiki.tcl.tk/21794>
is a presentation on an anatomical atlas.
- Using Tcl to define a domain-specific language was amply discussed
in this talk: <http://wiki.tcl.tk/21801>
- Solving ordinary differential equations using Tcl and a nice
little extension is so much easier now that it has found its
way into ActiveState's teacup - <http://wiki.tcl.tk/22633>
- Here is a widget to view web pages that has a long history:
- Here is a way to embed Windows Vista stuff in Tk:
- Here is one of the many file managers written in Tcl/Tk:
- Here is a visualisation of computations, using the standard
Tools, techniques, Tcl
- Want to run a program that was packaged with a starpack?
Here is a useful little helper script: <http://wiki.tcl.tk/23882>
- Illustrating hash tables, just pure Tcl: <http://wiki.tcl.tk/22017>
- A set of tools for your toolchest: <http://wiki.tcl.tk/22622>,

- How to program a wide variety of tasks in Tcl and compare them
to the solutions in other languages ... Quite illustrative:
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
