Subject: Dr. Dobb's Tcl-URL! - weekly Tcl news and links (Aug 6)

Karl Lehenbauer sums up the window of opportunity in the
"Quote of the Week":
We're out on the track, we're running good and the green flag is out. The language is going into the hands of an eager core team. Now is the time to STEP ON THE GAS. Do stuff to make it easier to build, release, obtain and run Tcl and extensions on every interesting-enough architecture.

To make this happen, Michael McLennan is coordinating the community voting for the Tcl Core Team. Visit

consider the people, and participate. Most of the candidates have made significant postings on comp.lang.tcl

On the technical side: George Peter Staplin shows how to have two listboxes share the same scrollbar.

Besides giving us the "Quote of the Week", Karl Lehenbauer talks about a "kinder, gentler" memory error and a possible way to fix it.

Cameron Laird points to Perl's "State of the Onion". This thread has provided much food for thought; including notes on other scripting languages, and even a contribution from Guido van Rossum! (author of the Python Language)
