Subject: Dr. Dobb's Tcl-URL! - weekly Tcl news and links (May 2)

Administrative note: "Tcl-URL!"'s target is to appear once a week, generally early on Monday or Tuesday. While we had a lot of variance around that goal during April, we're returning now to a more predic- table schedule.

It's finally spring, and young (and old) coders hearts turn to ... coding, of course!

Juan Gil announces "The Simple Library", a pure-Tcl collection of commands and such. Much akin to "tcllib", but some differences do exist:

A helpful pointer for folks using vi and vim on how to get the control character sequences for use with 'send':

How to catch those same control chatacter sequences on
UNIX and Windows NT - use TclX:

Looking converts... err, conversions for your Tcl scripts? Some thoughts about octal, hex, and floats:

How do we get cross platform printing? And what form do we need it in? Make your voice heard:
http://www.deja.com/=dnc/getdoc.xp?AN=616379255

Jean-Luc releases Tcl/Tk 8.3.1 Redhat RPMs, and taps his foot waiting for Jan to finish up the Plus Patch. Meanwhile, the rest of us moving at normal speed are still reading the original release announcement.
