QOTW: "[A]ny grab sucks, Tk grab sucks cross-platform." - Steve Landers
Kevin Walzer's magic show pulls a Cocoa-like Unified Toolbar out
of the MacOs hat:
The Tkinter mailing list has been particularly active lately,
generating more working code examples than are readily summarized.
Many of them apply to Tk working with base languages other than
Thanks to Arjen Markus for his mostly-weekly Wiki reports:
With most of Europe under an unusually early layer of snow,
the end of the year nearing fast, there is every reason to
look at the Wiki again ...
- Using Jim - the small foot-print reimplementation of Tcl - as
an alternative to autoconf? <http://wiki.tcl.tk/27197> for
- While there is a lot to say about BLT, it is still a powerful
tool for, among others, plotting data. And it is easily
combined with, say, TclODBC - <http://wiki.tcl.tk/27587>
- A fix to Snack reported. Recording radio broadcasts is
a jiffy with this: <http://wiki.tcl.tk/8583>
- The Wiki page on this CAD package leads to a rather
pretty website. Check it out: <http://wiki.tcl.tk/17805>
- Tcl has always been good at supporting very different
programming styles. Be they highly recursive parsers
such as the one described on <http://wiki.tcl.tk/14295>
or stream-oriented programming as <http://wiki.tcl.tk/3356>.
- Inter-process communication in various guises:
<http://wiki.tcl.tk/27375> details the set-up of the
Wibble web server and <http://wiki.tcl.tk/27488>
is dedicated to communication via the dbus library.
- Your humble chronicler follows very different roads through
the landscape of Tcl's possibilities with a simple solver
for certain partial differential equations - See
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
