QOTW: "[yield] is an alternative to [vwait] which does not suffer from
nesting problems." - Donald Porter, in the on-going series of commentaries
Donal and others compare flavors of OO in light of 8.5 and 8.6 advances.
Thanks to Arjen Markus for his (mostly) weekly summary of Wiki action:
Our faithful Wiki contains, as usual, a wide variety of new/updated
pages, with subjects ranging from the mundane to the arcane. See
- While Tcl itself is a high-level language, there is no problem
descending to C ... <http://wiki.tcl.tk/20123> uses an embedded
- Or even lower than that: <http://wiki.tcl.tk/20286> experiments
with assembly code.
Manipulating your email
- Here is a small tool to edit your incoming mail. Its purpose
is specific, but the technique should be generic enough:
- And can you remember your IP address? Here is a little
tool that reminds you of it - <http://wiki.tcl.tk/24079>
- Tired of the standard GUI themes on Linux? This may
be a nice addition: <http://wiki.tcl.tk/24094>
- A simple game, simple rules and endless puzzling,
sudokus for the ascetics: <http://wiki.tcl.tk/24093>
Yet another coroutine application
- Within Tcl you can define your own control structures.

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
