What's new in Tablelist 5.3?
YES, Tcl Dev Kit builds 64-bit applications--if asked nicely:
Insight into lists vs dicts, nesting, performance, Perlthink, ...:
Thanks to Arjen Markus for his mostly-weekly Wiki reports:
Early July, the holiday season has just started for some parts of the
Google Summer of Code Projects
- Diving into the wonderful world of NRE and finding out how it works -
- Conforming to emerging standards, this package promises a nice
infrastructure for managing e-learning content -
For the holidays
- Looking for a fun project? Here is code for compressing
images, unfinished, but it could be an educational experience
- The practical thing about polyhedron nets is that you can print
them and then apply age-old techniques to construct an actual
3D object - <http://wiki.tcl.8528>
- Want to play domino? Or play with some of the mathematics
that has evolved from these charming stones?
<http://wiki.tcl.tk/12970> contains a real challenge: play
against the computer.
For any season
- The list of things that might go into Tcl/Tk 9.0 has grown
by at least one item - <http://wiki.tcl.tk/883>
- Storing data in databases is one thing, but you can indeed
store procedures in them as well. <http://wiki.tcl.tk/23188>
- Enough graphical support with Tcl/Tk, even though this page
could do with some cleaning up. <http://wiki.tcl.tk/2389>
- Sometimes you get insight into the evolution of Tcl/Tk from
an unexpected source. A simple wish may lead to a discussion,
may show pieces of history ... <http://wiki.tcl.tk/1205>
- With a bit of magic, you can create a vi/vim "ctags" file and
even a call tree from a bunch of Tcl sources.
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
