Newsgroups: comp.lang.tcl
Subject: Dr. Dobb's Tcl-URL! - weekly Tcl news and links (Jul 10)

Paul Duffin explains a bit about the usage of and philosophy behind "stubs", which allow Tcl extensions to work with many different versions of Tcl without being recompiled

dhagberg@millibits.com is soliciting suggestions for a Sybtcl 3.0 roadmap

Unifix Online has ceased to exist as a company, but thanks to open source licensing, the excellent BWidget toolkit developed at Unifix is still available and should continue to work with future Tcl/Tk releases

A couple of new array ideas were proposed. See these references to read about [array foreach] and [array default]

Karl Lehenbauer proposed a new way to manipulate TclObjs from the script level. This isn't an object system for Tcl programs (like you get from Incr Tcl). This is manipulating the internal Tcl data structures, which allows you to do things like run code through the byte compiler

And this week's quote of the week is by Gordon Johnstone, which injected just a little bit of humor into the most heated threads to appear in c.l.t. in quite some time:
(this should be to music ) Poketcl, got to catch {'em all}.Team Otto says "COMPILER, I CHOOSE YOU, do your newsgroup annoy attack". Can Freewrap and TclKit save our hero's? Will sanity ever return to the group? Will anyone ever buy COMPILER? Tune in to the next exciting episode of Poketcl. ;0)
( My apologies to anyone without kids who has never heard of bloody Pokemon)
