QOTW: "Ugh, life has no meaning or purpose without wikit." - LucMove
Daniel A. Steffen answers 99+% of what you'd want to know about
Tcl/Tk in Snow Leopard, the current Mac OS release:
Thanks to Arjen Markus for his weekly summary of Wiki activity:
Time runs fast, in these few weeks before the conference.
So let us get started!
- On the verge of the conference, all manner of activities
are being discussed - <http://wiki.tcl.tk/22636>
- The official Tcl tutorial is being maintained, not much further
development, as stated in <http://wiki.tcl.tk/17557>. But the
remark about [gets] in <http://wiki.tcl.tk/14345> seems to
indicate a white spot ...
- A book on reliable distributed systems has a new edition
coming out soon - <http://wiki.tcl.tk/17334>
Warm and fuzzy things
- Search for strings that are almost but not quite equal to
others ... <http://wiki.tcl.tk/3841>
- Taking shortcuts in data synchronisations is quite possible,
using "bloom filters" - <http://wiki.tcl.tk/24321>
- Throw in a simple dialog window - for quick and dirty editing
of your global variables - <http://wiki.tcl.tk/24324>
- This "Dali" clock unfortunately does not quite work for your
chronicler, but check it out for yourself: <http://wiki.tcl.tk/24336>
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
