Tcl-URL! - weekly Tcl news and links (Jun 5)


QOTW:
    Heh, I just realised. Doubtless that sometime in 2010
    someone will ask the same question about why one would write:
        foreach {x y} $xy break
    instead of
        lassign $xy x y
    (and people will inevitably still complain that Tcl
    doesn't evolve) slebetman on c.l.t

    And always remember -- no one reads messageboxes anyway. They just
    click the default.  Pat Thoyts

POTW:
    ANN: Coccinella 0.96.0
        http://groups.google.com/group/comp.lang.tcl/browse_frm/thread/7441b5...
    Although I don't normally announce my Coccinella application here,
    I thought other developers might find useful code. Help yourself.
    If you find something useful I can give you any license you want.
    Small parts you just steal as is common practice.

    ANNOUNCE:  InstallJammer 1.2b1 Released!
        http://groups.google.com/group/comp.lang.tcl/browse_frm/thread/70e652...
    s is a beta release of the new 1.2 branch.  It includes
    lots of bug fixes and new enhancements.  This should be a
    fairly short beta cycle, so I'm hoping for only a single
    beta release before final.  Please test thoroughly.
    What is it?
    InstallJammer is a free, open source, multiplatform
    GUI installer and builder designed to be completely
    cross-platform and function on Windows and most all
    version of UNIX with eventual support for Mac OS X.

    Not everything is ready, but I would like to ask you to try it out and
    let me know about problems.
    New features:
    - 3D bars and other "business graphics"
    - Legends and textual annotations
    - Vector plots
    - Gradient and image background
    - Data represented as dots of different size and colour

ATTC: At the Core:
    [TCLCORE] Why ttk::dialog is gone?
        http://aspn.activestate.com/ASPN/Mail/Message/tcl-core/3490793

Thanks to Arjen Markus for his weekly reports on the Wikis:
  A somewhat slow week on the Wiki - but nonetheless, there
  are enough pages of interest.

  Things about Tk
  - An introduction to Tk, not quite finished yet, but it is
    a start (and you may want to contribute) -
    <http://wiki.tcl.tk/15242>

  - Things you can with a table ... create a version of the well-known
    "minesweeper" game for instance - <http://wiki.tcl.tk/8918>

  - Create a widget in a different style? The example in
    <http://wiki.tcl.tk/18188> shows how to build an entry widget
    for searching something in "Mac" style.

  Things about HTML
  - It is easy to generate HTML pages from within a Tcl program ...
    <http://wiki.tcl.tk/18187>

  - ... but perhaps a template-approach is more suitable for other
    users, that is, embed Tcl code in an HTML document. Here is
    such an approach: <http://wiki.tcl.tk/18185>

  - But of course, you might feel more comfortable still with a
    third approach - Ajax. Here is a wrapper for a particular
    Ajax library: <http://wiki.tcl.tk/18190>

  Things about building things
  - Teacup and Teapot are the key terms to retrieve extensions
    for the Tcl Extension Archive: teacup is the client program,
    teapot is the server. Well, details at: <http://wiki.tcl.tk/17305>
    and <http://wiki.tcl.tk/7579>

  - An easy way to build your own customised tclkit lite:
    <http://wiki.tcl.tk/18146>

Everything Tcl-related you want is probably one or two clicks away in these
pages:
    The "Welcome to comp.lang.tcl" message by Andreas Kupries
        http://www.purl.org/net/tcl-welcome
    comp.lang.tcl is a crucial resource for Tcl practitioners.
    An interesting perspective on its traffic appears at
        http://groups.google.com/group/comp.lang.tcl/about

    The Tcl Developer Site is Tcl's "home base".
        http://www.tcl.tk

    Larry Virden maintains a comp.lang.tcl FAQ launcher.
        http://www.purl.org/NET/Tcl-FAQ/

    The Tcl Developer Xchange is a highly organized resource center
    of documents and software with provisions for individuals to
    maintain references to their own software:
        http://www.tcl.tk/resource/
    The TDX sponsor, ActiveState, also keeps info to convince your
    boss Tcl is a good thing
        http://www.tcl.tk/scripting/

    The Tcl'ers Wiki is a huge, dynamic, collaboratively edited repository
    of documentation, examples, tutorials and pontifications on all things
    Tcl.
        http://wiki.tcl.tk/0
    For the ideal overview of the topics about Tcl most likely to
    interest a newcomer, see "Arts and Crafts ..."
        http://wiki.tcl.tk/969
    There's also a high-quality Wikibook on Tcl:
        http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Programming:Tcl

    ActiveState maintains binaries distribution and development tools
        http://www.activestate.com/Tcl
    along with a Cookbook of Tcl recipes
        http://aspn.activestate.com/ASPN/Cookbook/Tcl

    "La Gazette du Tcleux" is an important monthly publication.
        http://wfr.tcl.tk/1159

    deli.cio.us presents an intriguing approach to reference commentary.
    It already aggregates quite a bit of Tcl intelligence.
        http://del.icio.us/tag/tcl

    Cameron Laird tracks several Tcl/Tk references of interest (but
    needs to validate many of the links).
        http://phaseit.net/claird/comp.lang.tcl/

    Years ago, Cetus Links maintained a Tcl/Tk page with verified links
        http://www.cetus-links.org/oo_tcl_tk.html

    "Yahoo! Groups" archives comp.lang.tcl.announce posts--even
    though clta itself is dormant.
        http://groups.yahoo.com/group/tcl_announce/

We're working on more useful archives of past installments.  In the
meantime, an alternative is
  #oi=djq&as_q=+Tcl-URL&as_ugroup=comp.l...

Suggestions/corrections for next week's posting are always welcome.

To receive a new issue of this posting in e-mail each Monday, ask
<cla@phaseit.net> to subscribe.  Be sure to mention "Tcl-URL!".

Small typo,
It's not that but:
http://wiki.tcl.tk/18175
for the template approach.

Thanks for catching that, Arnulf.
