Tcl-URL! - 1999/04/25

by Matt Newman - 'DejaNews:'' [L1 ]

Last week I highlighted an ongoing discussion about how Scriptics and the Tcl community could work together. Since that discussion Scott Redman from Scriptics has been doing a sterling job of posting to c.l.t about bugs fixed and several people felt that this deserved recognition - so here it is - keep it up Scott!

  • Poor man's drag 'n' drop in a few lines of Tcl! (see [L2 ])
  • Discussion of look and feel in GUI's and use of native widgets (LONG) (see [L3 ])
  • Digression on Stubs and Patents (see [L4 ])
  • Discussion of changes since John Ousterhout wrote "Tcl and the Tk Toolkit" (see [L5 ])
  • Use of the Wcb extension works around a reported fault in Tk specific to Windows and Mac (see [L6 ])
  • Request to extend Tcl IO sub-system to enable stacking of IO channels - subsequent discussion of how powerful this kind of approach can be (see [L7 ])
  • Beautifully short alternative to TclX lassign (see [L8 ])
  • What's your favorite Regular Expression? (see [L9 ])
  • Tcl_Free vs. ckfree (or please use Tcl_Free!) (see [L10 ])
