Get your GSoC applications in THIS FRIDAY:
There are several possibilities for a list of checkboxes:
Coincidentally, "finalization" from Expect scripting also is
manifold. Uwe Klein provides a list:
Ouch! TkGecko loses (implicit) support:
Thanks to Arjen Markus for his mostly-weekly Wiki reports:
From a corner of the world that ought to be sunny and bright (and
obviously is not!) your chronicler reports ...
A picture says more ...
- Converting text into a picture may not have a very esthetically
pleasing effect, but it sure is a nice trick: <http://wiki.tcl.tk/14678>
- Much more elegant are these celtic knots - ornamentally elegant,
one might say! <http://wiki.tcl.tk/28191> is the starting point.
- Adding some interaction to a plot or a chart is quite simple, here
is an illustration: <http://wiki.tcl.tk/28179>
- As time is already passing too quickly, here is a little tool to
give you some hold. Draw the contents of your day -
The right tool for the job ...
- Find files quicky and without any fuss - <http://wiki.tcl.tk/19762>

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

For the ideal overview of the topics about Tcl most likely to

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
