by Cameron Laird - 'DejaNews:'' [L1 ]

Would it be better to post this to c.l.t.announce each week rather than c.l.t?

  • John Ousterhout announces Tcl's "release roadmap" for the next six months (see [L2 ]) John also sets out Scriptics' position on availability of the bytecode reader (see [L3 ]) and explains the role of TclPro Compiler (see [L4 ])
  • Bryan Oakley succinctly presents his elegant style for defining binding scripts (see [L5 ])
  • Stefan Schreyjak releases 3.01 of TCLPARSE swlab/sopra/tclsyntax/tclparseHome.html
  • Mumit Khan tips Brian H. Toby to Michael Schwartz's winexec addon which "allows me to 'exec' the DOS fortran programs directly."
  • While no one has yet taken the time to package Tcl's equivalent of Perl::File::Find, Eric Galluzo extemporaneously dashes off its content (see [L6 ]) Eric also explains a package subtlety which requires us to consider loadtime misfeatures (see [L7 ]) Although he doesn't take the opportunity to mention it, Eric's mkIndex upgrade probably interests many of the same readers (see [L8 ])
  • Nat Pryce gives good advice to those working with MSVC and DLLs (see [L9 ])
  • Testimonials for Robin Becker's generic dll caller continue to roll in
