Subject: Dr. Dobb's Tcl-URL! - weekly Tcl news and links (Nov 27)

A frequent question of programmers that port software from a system where you can count on /usr/lib/sendmail to Windows platforms: How to send e-mail on Windows? There are many solutions!

The debate on including [incr Tcl] into the core continues: Chris Fugate launches a discussion introducing 'frames' instead of objects.

Finally, TclPro has been fully placed into the open source domain!

For the Newbies: Tcl's expression parser and math functions sometimes forces you to be very aware of what's happening. Here is an example involving the difference of round() and int() functions.

The powers of for: 4^4 = 256 reasons why Tcl's 'for' control structure is as powerful or even more powerful than for-loops of C/C++/Java (and we didn't talk about foreach yet).
