    I was just compiling an list of things I think would be good for a FAQ list here on Clovertech.

    Figured I would ask the world what they think should be on this list.

      I think the FAQ section would be a great place to have a “HOW TO” section.   I know there are a lot of ways to skin a cat but on some of the more absolute solutions, that would be a great place to go to for reference.

      I think also.

      1> The use of variables in Xlates is a big one.

      2> A technique to detemine the proper path for iterations.

      3> Looping in a translation.

      How about a reminder to people that there is a lot of online tcl help available from the hcitcl prompt when you type in “help”, particularly if you are uncertain of command syntax.

      Chris,

      If you are on 5.6 the help for extended Tcl commands from the interactive interpreter is not very easy to get at.

      Moeover, the tree structure we have become accustomed to has disappeard (you know like help /tcl/files – now it is just /tcl).

      The help is still there but has not been updated for Tcl 8.4.  These were help files previously provided by extended Tcl which have not been updated by the Tcl community.  The help facility is still useful for the hci commands.  At the tcl/hcitcl prompt enter: help hci

      Also remember you can get usage help by simply typing in part of a command and then hit return at the tcl/hcitcl prompt.  For example, if I enter:  “string map”, I get:

      Error: wrong # args: should be “string map ?-nocase? charMap string”

      I use a set of HTML help files which I downloaded from the web some time back.  I have uploaded it to the forum before but here it is again.   All of the core commands are covered and examples provided.

      I would recommend you make a shortcut to:

          yourpathTcl HTML HelpTclCmdcontents.htm

      I put my shortcut on the status bar at the bottom of my Windows screen.  That way help is always available without having to close other Windows to get to it

      If we could only figure out how to download Charlie’s brain into the FAQ, we’d have it!    😆

      Downloading and storage could be pretty intense. How about just a URL directly to Charlie’s Brain?

      I’m afraid that a URL would show us more of Charlie then we want.  😆  

      I see lots of post out here on things that are covered or were covered in the level 1 class.

      I don’t want to compete with that but things not used get lost so should we include basic setup things here as well ?

      How about a list of Environment and Global variables that are available within the Cloverleaf Tcl interpreter(s)?

      Troy,

      To get the names, try

      Code:

      puts [info globals]
      puts [array names env]

      Thanks Chris, That does work, thanks!

      However, a list is only a start.  It still doesn’t give me an explanation of each one and what it’s used for.

      Thanks again!  Most helpful!  I can at least take this list and start searching for more information.

      Code:


      tcl>puts [info globals]
      tcl_interactive tcl_version platformcap tcl_traceCompile auto_path errorInfo EuroBinary env auto_pkg_index argc expect_library XtermPath tcl_traceExec error_spawn_id HciRootDir argv0 ClientServerMode auto_index tcl_pkgPath TCLXENV tcl_prompt1 tcl_libPath tcl_prompt2 localInit timeout argv tcl_rcFileName newBody errorCode HciRoot tcl_patchLevel HciProcessesDir gdbmwrapper TfcUccLocations tcl_platform tcl_library exp_library user_spawn_id any_spawn_id auto_oldpath tty_spawn_id platformcapdb HciSiteDir HciSite exp_exec_library _clPriv tclx_library

      If we had a FAQ, it should discuss how to pick port numbers for threads.
