Subject: Dr. Dobb's Tcl-URL! - weekly Tcl news and links (Apr 10)

"Let's do the time warp again..." a delayed posting covering the last week in March.

Some quotes on quoting, and substituting something for substitutions:
http://x42.deja.com/getdoc.xp?AN=604427478

Exec'ing in the background - friend or foe? Some thoughts and observations on deviant exec behavior:
http://x24.deja.com/getdoc.xp?AN=604514605

Does anyone have JINI in a bottle for Tcl? A few considerations are uncorked and passed around:

A Thread on Threads, forking off into methods of implementation within current extensions:
http://x46.deja.com/getdoc.xp?AN=604369898

A box, or a box within a box within a box... discussions on redundancy within 'package require':
http://x40.deja.com/getdoc.xp?AN=602334625

From the "I'm sure we've talked about this before, but.."
department - What do you use to write your scripts that gives you syntax checking/highlighting? More folks want to know...
http://x28.deja.com/getdoc.xp?AN=603335672

Winner of the "mutant thread" award, it starts out as a discussion on automated welcome 'bots for c.l.t., but gets occasionally meta-physical with some help from Laurent, Bob, and Andreas 'The Dragon':

In the "it's not a religious discussion, honest" department, thoughts and personal views on Tcl and Java comparisons.
http://x42.deja.com/getdoc.xp?AN=602184221

In the "well, it might have been useful if I wrote up the
Tcl-URL on time" department - the Silicon Valley Tcl Users Group was to be held April 4. No URL provided, because unless you have a [before] command, it already happened.

As Wierd Al Yankovic would say - "Ya wanna be a hacker, code-cracker, slacker?" The Michael McLennan "Who wants to be a tcl-hacker" contest/gameshow files are available for download:
