QOTW:
    It would be more likely to happen if you were to suggest with a patch
    instead of a vague complaint...  Donal K. Fellows on c.l.t
    Who said I wouldn't ?
    My original post was to rule out a cleaner solution; I hate wasted
    efforts.  Alexandre Ferrieux ending this discussion.

    different operating systems.
    Currently tested are Linux, SunOS and Windows (with msys).
    The work is based on the kitgen system and kbs ideas from Jean-Claude
    Wippler. Many thanks.

Thanks to Arjen Markus for his weekly reports on the Wikis:
  Need a delightful little application of no practical importance? Well,
  your Wiki chronicler will explain later on ...

  Looking at Tcl
  - The page which intends to list what features or functionality
    Tcl is missing is old and in need of updating:
    <http://wiki.tcl.tk/966>

  - Here is one good reason for that conclusion: handling directed
    graphs - another delightful little app: <http://wiki.tcl.tk/18129>

  Looking at Tk
  - Object-orientation again ... will the ingenuity of Tclers never end?
    <http://wiki.tcl.tk/18151> and <http://wiki.tcl.tk/18115>

  - And yet another widget to hide the complexity of cooperating widgets:
    "scrodgets" take over scrollbar management for you -
    <http://wiki.tcl.tk/13416>

  Looking at graphics and games
  - Remember to visit <http://wiki.tcl.tk/17771> evrty once in a while,
    as new 3D graphics demos become available.

  - Your chronicler is rather proud of Plotchart, his main contribution
    to Tklib. So a gallery was definitely called for!
    <http://wiki.tcl.tk/18167>

  - Take the fun out of sudokus and have your computer have a go at
    them: <http://wiki.tcl.tk/17261>

  Looking at a delightful little app
  - Your chronicler never realised this was possible. And if you
    can not easily understand French, just try it.
    <http://wfr.tcl.tk/1443>. Watch the mousy!

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.
