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

John Ousterhout and others report on the current status of the Tcl Core Team charter.

There's a new project at SourceForge for accessing Jabber (an open-source instant messaging system) through Tcl. Take a look at
http://sourceforge.net/projects/jabbertcl

A long thread on platform-independent installers, scripted documents and more ways to deploy your applications:
http://deja.com/=dnc/getdoc.xp?AN=674890124

Dan Smart proposes fundamental changes to Tcl lists, parsing and substitution rules. This thread gets (once again) into discussing evolution vs. revolution and the pace of Tcl development.

Lothar Scholz proposes an extension for multi-column listboxes for Tk 8.4. He make comparisons with existing implementations.
http://deja.com/=dnc/getdoc.xp?AN=675307663

Andreas Kupries mentions his ParseTools. That extension gives you access on the Tcl level to internal parsing routines (e.g., Tcl_Parse). Great if you do your own development tools.
