Tcl-URL! - 1999/04/05

by Mark Roseman - 'DejaNews:'' [L1 ]

I hope everyone who was able to take some time off enjoyed the long weekend. We wanted to note that Dejanews no longer is resolving URL's of the format "/thread/<articlenum>" which we've been using on Tcl-URL! As a work-around, you can change these to the "/getdoc.xp?AN=<articlenum>" form, and then click on "thread" on the resulting page.

  • Victor Wagner notes that Tk's internal base64 encode/decode utilities would be very handy if accessible at the script level (see [L2 ])
  • There is a project underway to port Tcl to Windows CE, using a WinCE-specific GUI layer rather than Tk (see [L3 ])
  • Clif Flynt has posted the "Real World" chapters from his book at his web site (see [L4 ])
  • Bryan Oakley proposes some syntactic changes to Tcl's automated test routine (see [L5 ])
  • Bet you didn't know you could change the console window's font (see [L6 ])
  • Don Libes explains how Tcl/Tk can be used to communicate with an xterm (see [L7 ])
