ActiveState Code has been launched (in beta)! ActiveState Code is a new
site that will be the eventual replacement of the venerable ASPN
Cookbooks, which covered several languages, including Tcl.
What this site offers over the ASPN Cookbooks:
* a complete visual refresh (long overdue)
* full tagging support of recipes
* support for many many more languages (the ASPN Cookbooks were
restricted to Python, PHP, Tcl and XSLT recipes)
In addition, the new site provides a sound foundation for other
improvements — so tell us what you think!. What is missing? What doesn’t
work? What would make the site more useful for you? for your community?
While the site is in beta, new recipes, comments and votes are not saved
— instead the site’s data will be sync’d from the ASPN Cookbooks most
nights. The plan is to fully move to this new site in two weeks,
shutting down the old ASPN Cookbooks (redirects will preserve all old

This site is meant to augment rather than replace any aspect of the
Tcl'ers wiki. The benefits of this for code over the Tcl'ers wiki is
increased structure on the code examples, ratings and syntax
highlighting of the code. It also represents an arena that we hope to
have a growing presence of multi-language solutions, and it would be
great to see Tcl maintain a strong presence there.
