Dirty Dozen

APN 2016-05-23 This page is only of historical interest. Links are either broken or contain outdated information.


This page lists about a dozen links to key places on the web regarding Tcl/Tk. It's quick and dirty... sort of RAD, just like Tcl/Tk :o)

There's a weekly post on usenet's comp.lang.tcl with a subject line of Tcl-URL!, (with some old archives at [1 ] [runs from early 2000s through 2006] ), that summarizes news and points to a few central Tcl/Tk sites:

    The "Welcome to comp.lang.tcl" message by Andreas Kupries
        http://www.purl.org/NET/akupries/c.l.t.welcome.html

    The contents of the page above is mailed to everyone posting
    to the Tcl USENET newsgroup news:comp.lang.tcl for the first time.

    This is intended to be a general site for Tcl news, pointers to tutorials, etc, but is awaiting additional community support.
