George A. Howlett (BLT author) discusses some of the design
theory in BLT.

Dealing with legacy apps? Kevin Kenny show how to shift output
from a FORTRAN program into a Tk widget.

Often, leading “zero” characters can cause issues in scripts.
But if we need to keep them as is, Gerhard Hintermayer shows
how.

“eval” works with 32 bit numbers. Miguel Sofer discusses getting
a modulus from 64 bit integers.

For the Newbies: Harald Oehlmann shows how to change font
size.

Andreas Leitgeb and Cameron Laird give a couple ways to include
an updating loop in a Tk widget.

Kevin Kenny, though, instructively models an [update]-free event-
based countdown. This is more truly The Tcl Way: more reentrant and
scalable.
