QOTW: "[R]eading the man page sure makes things easier." - gavino
Rob Sciuk and terryowen rave about SQLiteStudio:
Harald Oehlmann has his own recipe for single-file executables:
Thanks to Arjen Markus for his (mostly) weekly summary of Wiki action:
Let us waste no time - there is too little of it anyway ...
Some chemical stuff
- Reading the molecular structure of some chemical as found in an SDF
file may not suit everybody's ideas of a fun project, but the result
is pretty: <http://wiki.tcl.tk/24059>. For a more powerful alternative,
you may want to look at <http://wiki.tcl.tk/6429>
- And visualising the dynamics of molecules is yet another application
oriented to chemistry: <http://wiki.tcl.tk/24044>
Some graphical stuff
- With the latest changes to Tk on the Mac, Tk applications will
look quite acceptable on that platform, if not more:
- Viewing 3D objects in the canvas ... not as difficult as it might
- How about taking a picture and turning it into a set of ASCII
characters that (coarsely) reproduce the picture? An old form
of computer art revived: <http://wiki.tcl.tk/24052>
- Tools for geographical maps. Well, to deal with the "mapserver".
<http://wiki.tcl.tk/24055> will tell you more.
Some algorithmic stuff
- The myriads of ways dates and times can be given present nasty
complication, but this code harnesses at least a useful subset:
- A framework or two to deal with abstract data types, useful when
dealing with correctness proofs - <http://wiki.tcl.tk/9547>
- Coroutines continue to amaze. Here is an example of keeping
your applications interactive: <http://wiki.tcl.tk/24060>
sound and formally correct
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
