QOTW: "The value of DVCS != geographically distributed. That's just an
extra. It's all about workflow." - Larry McVoy
"Tcl-URL!" periodically advertises [clock]'s benefits. Did you
know about invocation-specific locale settings?
Thanks to Arjen Markus for his (mostly) weekly summary of Wiki action:
The deadline for the next Tcl conference is today! So send in your
abstracts etc. If you have already done so, read on for the summary.
- How does object-orientation fit in with natural languages?
A philosophical but also practical discussion at
- A connoisseur's page on one aspect of XML files and the "document
object model": constructing the XPath for an element.
- Quite a few GSoC projects (if not all) have a Wiki page of their
own. Here is a project aiming at e-learning and the de facto
standard SCORM: <http://wiki.tcl.tk/23190>
- Interested in rough sets? Or for that matter computations on
relational data sets in general? Then have a look at these
two pages: <http://wiki.tcl.tk/23970> and <http://wiki.tcl.tk/21767>
- Oratclers will want to study <http://wiki.tcl.tk/23664> for its
narrative of a specific memory fault.
- Interested in distributed computing? Then this page, going by
an inconspicuous name, is certainly worth your while:
- It may have been a ridiculously simple game, but it has made
the history books. Have another go at the bouncing ball:
- If you are always getting your fingers in a knot, while
playing the guitar because you cannot find those chords ...
then this is for you! <http://wiki.tcl.tk/17748>
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
