  • Preferred access to archives of Tcl-URL! articles has moved
  • Richard Hipp's Mktclapp, a successor to his Embedded Tk, lets you integrate and package apps using Tcl, C, and C++
  • Alexandre Ferrieux provides a good summary of the discussion to date on how best to build sound into Tcl (see [L3 ])
