Tcl-URL! - weekly Tcl news and links (May 7)


QOTW:
    The rule for canonicity can most conveniently be tried out by using
    the [list] operation on "chemically active" individual items (i.e.
    things containing \$[] or unbalanced "{}). Basically any dangerous
    compound is protected by {} or \ when [list]ified and converted back
    to string. Alexandre Ferrieux on c.l.t

    In September 2007 the U.S. Tcl conference returns to the historic
    French Quarter of the city of New Orleans.  Join us for what promises
    to be the best Tcl conference yet.   Even better, contribute a
    paper, be prepared to talk about a work in progress, or join in on
    the lively "Birds of a Feather" discussions that may range in topic
    anywhere from "Using the Tile widget set" to "Obsolete weaponry."

    Tcl 2007 will be held at the Bourbon Orleans Hotel
    in New Orleans, LA.   Tutorial sessions on various
    topics will be held September 24-25, with the conference itself
    running from September 26-28.

Thanks to Arjen Markus for his weekly reports on the Wikis:
  Now that the Wiki is back, there is lots of activity.
  So, let us hightlight a few pages!

  Showing a picture
  - ... of satellite orbits. Yes, <http://wiki.tcl.tk/17570> describes
    SaVi, a system to simulate the orbit of satellites around the earth,
    complete with maps and such.

  - ... and adding hyperlinks? Find a discussion of a few flavours
    to do this on <http://wiki.tcl.tk/18003>

  Of files and things
  - Wrapping the various file I/O commands into one object-oriented
    interface. It is easy enough: <http://wiki.tcl.tk/13246>

  - Still, adding a new subcommand to an existing one is made very
    easy too, now that Tcl 8.5 handles ensembles of commands -
    <http://wiki.tcl.tk/18001>

  People things
  - Converting numbers to almost any other writing system in existence:
    <http://wiki.tcl.tk/18021>

  - Beyond merely making sound: synthesize speech -
    <http://wiki.tcl.tk/11785>

  - Daemons as a UNIX programmer understands them and Windows services
    as a Windows programmer understands ... <http://wiki.tcl.tk/2224>
    discusses mainly the first.

  - Early-morning thoughts captured in a Wiki page ... What can we add
    to the Wiki? <http://wiki.tcl.tk/17991>

  - Looking for reading material? Here is a vast collection of articles
    with an easy-to-remember page number: <http://wiki.tcl.tk/18000>

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...
