QOTW: "La cha\xeene vide est la valeur moins lourde." - Kevin Kenny
Donal explains dict aspects:
Thanks to Arjen Markus for his (mostly) weekly summary of Wiki action:
July is nearing its end, deadlines are passing ... Let
the summary begin!
- Here are a few nice utilities for dealing with images:
- An interface to a C++ library for dealing with images
in all manner of formats: <http://wiki.tcl.tk/24014>
- Talking of C++, here is an extension that deals with
C++ objects: <http://wiki.tcl.tk/24024>
- And then you may want to tunr your Tcl code into C code.
For various reasons: <http://wiki.tcl.tk/17385>
- Using TclOO in a not-so-trivial context: a classic
data structure like trees can be implemented via TclOO,
but some questions remain unanswered, such as
performance ... <http://wiki.tcl.tk/23893>
- The countdown program is a golden oldie ... All has been
said about it, it would seem. But Tcl 8.6 puts a new twist
to it with coroutines: <http://wiki.tcl.tk/946>
- Programming problems can often be solved in different ways.
But the performance of various solutions is impossible
to estimate: measure it, is the only advice!
- Here is some documentation on Metakit: well worth reading
if you are looking for a simple to use data storage facility:
- And here are some job openings: <http://wiki.tcl.tk/13259>
has a recent one at the bottom.
- Should the scale widget be revised? Any solution for the
problem described at the end of <http://wiki.tcl.tk/14628>?
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
