    ANNOUNCE: ADB and ADBSQL pure-tcl database engine for Tcl/Tk by
    Roalt Aalmoes

    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
    additional packages.
    Both modules are released under open source LGPL or BSD licenses (your
    pick)
    More information:
        http://wiki.tcl.tk/6319 - Tcl/Tk wiki page on ADB
        http://adbsql.sourceforge.net/adb.html - Manual page of ADB
        http://adbsql.sourceforge.net/adbsql.html - Manual page of ADBSQL

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
    performance: <http:/wiki.tcl.tk/8711>

  - Chess is a difficult game to learn and to play well.
    But that is not the point: in just a few lines of code
    you can have a GUI and play against some unseen opponent:
    <http://wiki.tcl.tk/8708>

  - 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>

  Web initiatives
  - 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.

  Faits divers
  - 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>
    (With a few worthy tips on font management)

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.
