the Wiki summary.
- Molecules to be visualised on the 3D demo of the month page
- Can the comptability layer that Tk uses on Windows be replaced
by something more efficient? <http://wiki.tcl.tk/2177> describes
the project, but is there any progress? Or volunteers?
- Here is a nice little demonstration of BLT - a stripchart
- Gtk supports the use of configuration files to define a GUI ...

<http://wiki.tcl.tk/1917> for an answer and a solution.
- Every so often the question is raised: what is the essential

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.

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
