what you want any time you think you want <Visibility>." - Donal K. Fellows
'Going to TclCon2010? The official conference schedule is up at:

Thanks to Arjen Markus for his mostly-weekly Wiki reports:
After some difficult days the Wiki is its old self again. Time
to see new stuff is available!
- Serializing an object or objects turns out to be a non-trivial
task ... <http://wiki.tcl.tk/23444>
- But, like always with object-orientation, there are many
aspects to be considered. Or programmed: <http://wiki.tcl.tk/20308>
offers a framework for the latter.
- Another month, yes, another 3D demo. The solar system this time.
- You have a camera and you have Tcl ... Not too hard to make
the two meet: <http://wiki.tcl.tk/6305>
- There are all manner of ways to store a picture, but vector
graphics seems a very popular methodology at the moment.
Besides SVG, we now have ImageMagick's vector graphics
too - <http://wiki.tcl.tk/26859>
- A pity: continued maintenance of the QuickTimeTcl package
will require a large investment of time. Are there any
volunteers? <http://wiki.tcl.tk/5434> leads to some
- A new version of Tcl/Tk 8.5: look at the release notes
linked in this Wiki page for more information.
- Ah, those intriguing coroutines! They continue to
inspire. Here is a little excursion into the world
of VHDL<: <http://wiki.tcl.tk/26959>
- Tcl already has quite a few commands for dealing with
lists. But like coroutines, you can always think of
different ways to use them. Shifting, popping, what is
in a name? <http://wiki.tcl.tk/8177>
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
