The Plume home page is the beginnings of a guide to writing active message content using Tk 4, Safe Tcl (stcl), and other pieces of technology. See for more details on writing server side scripting, servlets, microscripting, and more.

Plume is a Tcl/Tk WWW browser. It supports references to weblets written in Tcl/Tk, which it then can execute, if the user so configures. It uses safe-tcl to provide security to the user.

 What: Plume
 Where: ???
 Description: Tcl/Tk WorldWideWeb (WWW) browser.
        Supports HTML v1.0 and v2.0, along with a subset of HTML v3.0
        tables.  Goal is for it to be completely v3.0 compliant.  Handles
        inline GIF (including transparent GIFs), PPM, and X bitmap images.
        Supports older Tcl applets using Jacob Levy's Safe-Tcl extension.
        Runs with Tcl/Tk 8.0b1.  Dynamically loads tclX and
        BLT extensions.  Supports CMT's cmplayer.
        Note that this program contains a module (prot.tcl) to handle
        the HTTP 1.0 protocol. Includes an HTML megawidget which has
        table support.  Support for XML documents and tcl based DTDs is
        also available.  Also contains Safe-Tk code.

dox: I've found a working mirror: + more ancient TCL scripts within the /tcl/ directory. I forgot how lovely FTP is; a treasure trove. Taking a backup of all as we speak.
