QOTW: "Tcl 8.6 is basically 'stackless Tcl' ..." - Donal K. Fellows
Thanks to Arjen Markus for his weekly summary of Wiki activity:
Sometimes real life is very demanding ... but now the time has come
to pick up the Wiki summary again.
- Several ways to wasting computer time in an elegant way -
- Badly formed HTML code may confuse tDOM, but with a little
help from other packages, not all is lost - <http://wiki.tcl.tk/25930>
- Project ideas for Google's summer of Code, anyone? Now is the time
to write them down. - <http://wiki.tcl.tk/23186>
- Can you keep track of the capitalisation of your procedure names?
With this little trick, there is no need to - <http://wiki.tcl.tk/25921>
- Manipulating tabulated information made easy: <http://wiki.tcl.tk/25882>
- Handling mathematical expressions is a piece of cake for the [infix]
package - <http://wiki.tcl.tk/17040>. And a more or less practical
use can be found at <http://wiki.tcl.tk/25919>
- While we are at it, special functions by the dozens -
- Setting up expert systems requires a careful selection of the rules.
TclCLIPS may help here, giving access to the CLIPS engine.
Make it visible
- Rotating big images. You can do it quickly with C and painlessly
with Tcl. Here is the combination: <http://wiki.tcl.tk/25931>
- Move a widget around - one part of an interactive GUI builder.
Not a few lines of code: <http://wiki.tcl.tk/25888>
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
convince 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
