thread::send to main thread fails?

Hi all,

I'am starting with threads, after experimenting I came across a few lines which crash/deadlock/whatever and I don't know why:

## prepare:
> package re Thread
> set tid [thread::create {thread::wait}]

## this command works fine as expected:
> thread::send [thread::id] {puts hello}

## but this command fails - where in principle it should be the same as the one above?
> thread::send $tid [list thread::send [thread::id] {puts hello}]

PerlEZ in version 5.12.2?

Hi all,
Thanks in advance for your help.

It seems strange, but I couldn't find the answer to the question-

Is PerlEZ still supported in ActivePerl 5.12.2 ?

I have the 32 bit version of perl installed on a 64 bit machine, and I can't get PerlEZ to work (although I do see the PerlEZ files in the appropriate directories, I get a "File not found" error). I'm trying to call PerlEZ from Microsoft Access 2010 64bit edition.

Any help would be appreciated.



Expect no longer available in ActiveTcl?

I need to write a small utility using Expect to control a remote telnet session. I would have preferred using Perl as the rest of the project is in that language, but that seems like a dead end on Windows with ActivePerl.

I then turned to ActiveTcl and was encouraged this page:

However, the package cannot be found when I try the recommended command: "teacup install Expect".

Where can I get a working 'expect' solution under Windows?

Thanks in advance,

Import and export files to and from MS Access using python

I'm able to run sql queries within MS Access using python. I can't figure out how to simply import and export tables to and from MS Access using python. The work flow looks like this:
1. connect to the database
2. import a csv or dbf file to the database
3. run some queries
4. export the results

Sounds simple enough. Please help.

Can't install tcom package through teacup

Hi there,
I am a absolute newbee to Tcl.

I'd like to use tcom package of Tcl, as suggested in the following link. The purpose is to use emacs as an editor for Outlook.

However, when running the grabOutlookMessage.tcl function in the above link, there was an error:

can't find package tcom
    while executing
"package require tcom"
    (file "C:\Users\XXXX\Documents\grabOutlookMessage.tcl" line 9)

So, I figure the package tcom is not installed. Then I tried to installed the pakcage using teacup. Below is what I got:

Tk is still missing from AS perl 5.12 ppm for windows


Does anyone have any information on when AS will be putting Tk back into either its install or available from the ppm instruction on windows 7?

I've done searches here, and found 3 items, both are months ago (8/25/10ish) but nothing since. They state there were some bugs still needing to be fixed. Hopefully, I am just missing something and that they are working on getting this resolved, and not just left hanging.

Any help would be appreciated!

ActiveTCL UDP install fails

I've been trying to install ActiveTCL UDP via teacup, but it keeps failing.

I've downloaded and installed the Win32 community version
I'm using Windows 7 64-bit version.
I did have 64-bit active TCL, but it told me I needed a Business license to access the TeaCUP repository, so I changed to the Win32 Community version.

I get one of the 2 following errors.
Any help you can give would be much appreciated.
I would even install the files manually but I don't know how to access the package so I can install it manually.
