Tcl-URL! - 1998/11/16

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

Mark Roseman returns next week.

  • Don Porter exteriorizes procedures for URL encoding (see [L2 ])
  • While c.l.t.a is so high in S/N it's generally read in its entirety, getting along well in the Windows world is important enough to give special attention to Nat Pryce's write-up on integrating Tcl shells into NT (see [L3 ]) Similarly, while Jay Sekora's jstools speaks for itself (in English, French, and Portuguese), everyone should give it a chance, if only as a rich lode of examples of such common needs as prompting a user for a color name (see [L4 ])
  • Steve Ball covers the waterfront of Tcl-XML co-operation. The latest delivery is TclExpat 1.1 for Windows (see [L5 ])
  • Viktor Dukhovni masterfully analyzes costs and benefits of a proposal to modify internal management of array variables (see [L6 ]) Notice also the supporting remarks of the two follow-ups.
  • Bryan Oakley, Jeff David, and Alexei V. Zakis configure texts which support cut-and-paste and programmatic man- ipulation, but not user edits (thread [L7 ])
  • Keith Vetter and Victor Wagner re-start Wish scripts (thread [L8 ])
  • Jean Brouwers usefully reviews signal-handling in Tcl contexts complicated by rsh (see [L9 ])
  • Practical advice on running CGI (see [L10 ])
  • Web sites, the annual Conference, c.l.t, mailing lists, ...--now Tcl has an IRC channel (see [L11 ])
  • Andreas Kupries works up an explanation of Tcl_{In,De}crRefCount (see [L12 ])
  • Mumit Khan extends his apparent campaign to document all difficulties involved in getting Cygwin and Tcl to work together (see [L13 ])
