ANNOUNCE: ADB and ADBSQL pure-tcl database engine for Tcl/Tk by
ADB together with the MySQL database connectivity module adbsql are a
Tcl/Tk package useful for Tcl/Tk programmers that want to store their
data in a database-kind of way with tables and fields.
Two (optional) features of ADB that may make it worthwhile for you:
* Writing the database as XML output and later of course the ability
to read it.
* Connecting directly to a MySQL database.
The fun part of ADB is that you can either use it as a full pure tcl
library, or you can use these advanced features that require
Both modules are released under open source LGPL or BSD licenses (your

Thanks to Arjen Markus for his weekly reports on the Wikis:
The Wiki gnomes are diligently unearthing old pages - what gems
they turn up! Let us start the summary rightaway.
Tiny games and demos
- Once you have a basic design, it is easy to change
the theme and come up with a different looking application.
<http://wiki.tcl.tk/4801> is an example
- But even if you have a good basic design, it pays to pay
attention to some details. For instance to get a better

But that is not the point: in just a few lines of code
you can have a GUI and play against some unseen opponent:
- Translating human languages ... that (once?) elusive goal of
artificial intelligence. With some aid from a human a computer
_can_ come a long way - <http://wiki.tcl.tk/11458>
- A new Tcl module for Apache - wtcl - <http://wiki.tcl.tk/18117>
It promises to be simple.
- A new fun project on a related subject: what would be needed
for a "Tcl on Rails"? <http://wiki.tcl.tk/18088>. With a lively
discussion of all imaginable details.
- References to data and garbage collection ... done as an
extension ... <http://wiki.tcl.tk/11090> for gourmets who
appreciate technical details.
- Remember the chemical periodic system from your schooldays? Well,
here it is in a neat Tcl program: <http://wiki.tcl.tk/18111>
