From: FAQ General information Subject: -VII- Where can I find information relating to Tcl on the Internet? 000. The following newsgroups often are likely locations for Tk extension related discussions: <URL: news:comp.lang.tcl >, <URL: >, <URL: news:comp.lang.python >, <URL: news:comp.lang.misc >. Announcements about Tcl or Tk related code releases may be seen in <URL: news:comp.lang.tcl.announce >, <URL: news:comp.archives >, <URL: >, and <URL: news:comp.lang.perl.announce > as well. Discussions concerning porting of Tcl and/or Tk into new OSes occasionally are found in newsgroups such as <URL: news:comp.os.linux.development.apps >, <URL: >, <URL: >, <URL: >, and <URL: news:comp.unix.bsd.freebsd.misc >. Discussions relating to specific applications can be found in newsgroups such as <URL: news:alt.comp.tkdesk >. Foreign language discussions concerning Tcl and Tk can be found in <URL: news:maus.os.linux >, <URL: news:maus.os.linux68k >, <URL: news:de.comp.lang.tcl >, <URL: news:fr.comp.lang.tcl >, and <URL: news:fj.lang.tcl >. 001. The introductory papers on Tcl and Tk by Dr. J. Ousterhout are available at <URL: >, <URL: >, <URL: >. (The last of these files is the contents of Figure 10 of the Tk paper). The examples from the Ousterhout book are available in one large file as <URL: >. A series of PostScript slides used in an introduction/tutorial on Tcl and Tk at several X and Usenix Conferences are available as <URL: >. Dr. Ousterhout has written an engineering style guide that describes the coding, documentation, and testing conventions that are used in Tcl and has made it available to other Tcl/Tk developers. It is located at <URL: >. Feedback is welcome, but specifics concerning actual conventions are unlikely to change. Primarily there is room for changes on the presentation itself, as well as additional conventions which should be present but are not. Notes pointing to a conflict between a stated convention and Tcl or Tk base code are of interest. Send comments to Dr. Ousterhout <URL: >. There is also pointers to slide presentations made at the Symposium on Very High Level Languages and papers concerning intelligent agents on the Internet. Pointers to various Tcl applications (such as the Tcl Plugin, SpecTcl/SpecJava, WebTk), as well as FAQs and tutorials about these applications, can be found on the <URL: > site. A page comparing Tcl to Visual Basic, Perl and Javascript can be found at <URL: >. A series of "How To" articles are also available at TDX.

From: FAQ General information Subject: -IX- Where can I find the FAQ and who do I contact for more information about it? I keep pointers to the authority locations of the various Tcl FAQs of which I am aware at <URL: >. I am also going to attempt to keep a copy of this file up to date on <URL: > in files named tcl-faq.part0[1-5]. Make sure you pick up the newest ones there. There are mirrors of the user contribution archive site maintained elsewhere - for instance, it appears that huji, denet, luth, obspm, th-darmstadt, sunsite, univie all have some portion of the user contrib archives available. Also, I will be posting it on a regular basis to at least <URL: news:comp.lang.tcl >, <URL: news:news.answers >, and <URL: news:comp.answers >. Many FAQs, including my particular ones, are available on the archive site <URL: >. The subdirectory and name under which a FAQ is archived appears in the Archive-name line at the top of the article. For example, this part of the comp.lang.tcl FAQ is archived as <URL: >. There is a Northern European archive for the FAQ at <URL: > as well as a French location for the FAQ at <URL: >. A great WWW site for these archives can be found at <URL: >. There is also a mail server from which you can obtain a copy of the FAQ. Send an email message to <URL: > or <URL: > with the word help in the body of the message to find out how to use it. Also, this FAQ is available from within gopher (by looking at any one of the gopher holes presenting news.answers or FAQ lists), from WAIS servers (such as the comp.lang.tcl.src), from a number of sites which have available via ftp archives of news.answers and comp.answers (use archie to locate one of these sites available around the world), and probably other resources as well. Other news.answers/FAQ archives (which carry some or all of the FAQs in the <URL: > archive), sorted by country, are: Belgium ------- <URL: gopher:// > <URL: > mail-server <URL: > Send "get avail FAQs" Canada ------ <URL: gopher:// > France ------ <URL: > <URL: > <URL: > <URL: gopher:// > mail server <URL: > Germany ------- <URL: > <URL: > <URL: > <URL: gopher:// > <URL: gopher:// > <URL: > FSP <URL: fsp:// > mail server <URL: > <URL: > <URL: > The Netherlands --------------- <URL: > <URL: > <URL: gopher:// > <URL: > <URL: > <URL: > <URL: > <URL: > mail server <URL: > Switzerland ----------- <URL: > <URL: telnet:// > anonymous UUCP chx400:ftp/info_service/Usenet/periodic-postings mail server <URL: > Taiwan ------ <URL: > United States ------------- <URL: > Various Uniform Resource Locator (URL) ids for the comp.lang.tcl FAQ exist. My personal copy is found at <URL: >. The user can use a WorldWideWeb (WWW) client to access the Tcl FAQ from this point. Another FAQ page is <URL: >. Yet another is <URL: >. A WWW URL where the FAQ is treated simply as one long scrollable document (suitable for doing a search against, for instance) is <URL: > though there are reports that this server is not responding to HTTP requests. A archive of the newsgroup is available from <URL: > where the archive is organized by collecting each month's worth of postings into its own file. This archive has been kept since January 1993. There is a Tcl room on Internet Relay Chat (IRC). Contact Don Lindsay <URL: > for details on the #TCL room. The FAQs also can be found in many of the various archives for <URL: news:comp.lang.tcl > as well as mirrors of the neosoft ftp site. I must warn you though that in many cases, the copies of the FAQs found around the internet are woefully out of date. The PURL points to the authority location and should be available to all. Let me know when you find the FAQ in new and unusual locations so I can update this resource guide! ------------------------------ From: FAQ General information Subject: -X- On what sites can I find archives for comp.lang.tcl? At <URL: >, the <URL: news:comp.lang.tcl.announce > postings are archived. Details regarding a mailing list of postings to this newsgroup are also at the WWW site. At <URL: >, the first few months worth of articles on <URL: news:fr.comp.lang.tcl > are available, while the current articles are available at <URL: >. FTP access to individual articles from March through October 1997 are available at <URL: ftp:// >. One ftp archive of old <URL: news:comp.lang.tcl > articles is available from <URL: >. <URL: > (Jan Newmarch) maintained it. It contains articles from July 1993 thru December, 1993. Another archive is available as <URL: > and is stored as a series of monthly archives. It is maintained by <URL: > (Kazuro Furukawa). Archives for 1992-1996, as well as for January thru April 1997 ar available. Another such site is <URL: >, which covers from December 1993 through April of 1996 (with what appears to be various holes in coverage). One way to access old <URL: news:comp.lang.tcl > articles is to get one of the published CD-ROMs. CD ROM World's 1993 CD-ROM claims to include 40 meg of articles. InfoMagic's 1996 Tcl/Tk CD-ROM makes the same claim. More interesting ways to access a portion of the newsgroup are <URL: comp.lang.tcl"> > and a number of the USENET interactive archive sites. The first gives you access to a small number of recent news articles. The latter includes <URL: comp.lang.tcl"> >, <URL: comp.lang.tcl.announce"> >, and <URL: > (which provides a mechanism for sending you email when new postings which match your favorite search query appear; unfortunately, most of the historical clt access is no longer available here). Another site would be <URL: comp.lang.tcl"> > and <URL: comp.lang.tcl.announce"> >. At <URL: >, one gets the opportunity to do WAIS searching against various databases, one of which appears to be the comp.lang.tcl newsgroup. At <URL: > or <URL: > you will find a MacOS Sherlock plug-in for searching <URL: >. A fantastic Internet resource is Tcl-URL, found at <URL: >. This is a weekly summary of the <URL: news:comp.lang.tcl > highlights. Other sites with this information include <URL: >. <URL: > is yet another attempt at providing users access to <URL: news:comp.lang.tcl > and <URL: news:comp.lang.tcl.announce > via WWW. Also see <URL: > for a variety of resources. Andreas Kupries <URL: > has made compressed archives of some of 1998 and 1999 postings to comp.lang.tcl available. See <URL: > for links. Unified Technologies Corp. has announced the UTCorp Free Access News Server (FANS) -- a public, freely accessible news server which will mirror select USENET newsgroups. At the moment, it mirrors comp.lang.tcl and comp.lang.tcl.announce. The news server runs using TclNNTPD <URL: >, a newly released, open-source, TCL-only coded NNTP news server. To access this server, use <URL: nntp:// >. See <URL: > for more info. ------------------------------ End of comp.lang.tcl Frequently Asked Questions (2/5) ***************************************************** -- Tcl - The glue of a new generation. <URL: > Larry W.
