QOTW: "[I] invoke the leaden albatross of mixed metaphor." - Donal K. Fellows
How should a Tcl application integrate a Web server?
YES, Tcom is worthwhile:
Variable scoping? Exception-handling? Read how Tclers think about
typical debugging situations:
Thanks to Arjen Markus for his mostly-weekly Wiki reports:
The world being the astounding place it is today, we are lucky
to have the Wiki ... Some old pages turning up, some new pages
being added - the Wiki remains a welcome resource.
- Digging into the history of Tcl? This page will be helpful
in providing an overview from the very start -
- Let the computer speak up! Not as difficult as it might seem
at first - <http://wiki.tcl.tk/6252>
- If Mohammed does not come to the mountain, maybe the other way
around is a solution: <http://wiki.tcl.tk/28293> documents
- Comparing the performance of data structures such as dicts versus
arrays requires careful thought and above all: a good
understanding of what is going on. <http://wiki.tcl.tk/13826>.
- Existing commands can be persuaded to do things in an unexpectedly
elegant way. Check the end of this page on a feature that Perl
has and Tcl does not (or does it?) - <http://wiki.tcl.tk/9617>
- Talking of elegant, here is a little tool to extract those
lines in files that interest you - <http://wiki.tcl.tk/28641>
- Or how about dissecting the HTML code of an Internet page and
visualising the tree structure it actually is?
- Of course, you could be interested in completely different things,
say, artificial intelligence and the use of "agents". Well,
check this page: <http://wiki.tcl.tk/15200>
- Encrypt and decrypt is the motto of the Blowfish algorithm.
So, at your service: <http://wiki.tcl.tk/12985>
- When all else fails, you may have to hunt for a memory leak ...
<http://wiki.tcl.tk/28634> throws a life line or two.
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
