QOTW: "... one year into using Fossil instead of CVS, I can now not
understand how we ever got by before.... The CVS to DVCS transition
is every bit as liberating as the RCS to CVS transition was two decades
ago...." - Richard Hipp
'Going to TclCon2010 in October? The official conference schedule is
Registration is available through:
Planned social events include a tour of FermiLab and other intoxicants.
Thanks to Arjen Markus for his mostly-weekly Wiki reports:
With the international Tcl conference less than a month away
we have passed the "27000" border. So, let the summary begin.
On and off
- The Wiki can be used online and offline, as you know of course.
But the details about the latter may be rusty, so check
<http://wiki.tcl.tk/20412> for an update.
- Spindle is a new project wrt building websites. Quite a few
technologies in that project should lead to something that
is easy to use. <http://wiki.tcl.tk/27001>
- Another new project is StarStore - a data storage system
based on the idea of key-value pairs, but more sophisticated.
<http://wiki.tcl.tk/27002> holds the key.
- A classic algorithm revisited - with dicts this time, but
you can also follow the links to mathematically more sophisticated
versions of this Eratosthenes sieve - <http:/wiki.tcl.tk/12600>
Up and about
- Extending doxygen with support for Tcl ... That is a nice
idea: <http://wiki.tcl.tk/27011> reports the progress.
- Do you play a musical instrument? Then you may be interested
in controlling it via MIDI. Here is a page devoted to doing
that from Tcl - <http://wiki.tcl.tk/20928>
- Torsten Berg and your Wiki chronicler have been preparing several
nice new features in Plotchart. These (and others) will become
available as "version 2.0". Screenshots? <http://wiki.tcl.tk/26967>
Naughty ... or not?
- The first or one of the first legitimate Wiki pages devoted to
porn. Or should we say, it is devoted a special form of image
manipulation? Anyway, <http://wiki.tcl.tk/27015> mainly contains
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
