Coming up soon: news of the Tcl/Tk Consortium's CD-ROM project.

  • Monday, August 24 is the last day for early registration savings for the annual Tcl/Tk Conference (September 14-18 in San Diego)
  • A couple of threads carefully detail Unix realities pertinent far beyond just the Tcl community. Thanks first to John Gotts for his tutorial on what to do when confronted with a Unix application that dumps core (see [L2 ]) Nikola Miljkovic and Jens-Uwe Mager describe the vagaries of dynamic linking, particularly with AIX (see [L3 ])
  • Cary D. Renzema explains the benefit to readers of the prodigious work he has done in indexing and transforming into PostScript all the manual pages (see [L4 ]) In that same thread, Tom Phelps advertises his TkMan convincingly (see [L5 ])
  • Wilson Wong and Victor Wagner collaborate to provide a nice introduction to automation of a TN3270 interface (see [L6 ])
  • Eric Galluzo escorts the theme of textual modularization through a swift tour of source and package, leaving the reader on the threshold of namespaces (see [L7 ])
  • Matt Berney gently opens yet another expression of the answer to the perennial "how do I put together C/Tk/...?" question (see [L8 ])
  • Scriptics issues its almost-weekly update of TclPro (see [L9 ])
