Caubview is a companion visualizer for the Caubweb system:
Caubweb enables a user to create local collection of Web documents to
read and update when disconnected. Caubview allows the visual selection of
alternative views of the cache as well as reorganizing and
restructuring these views.
This paper describes our ongoing work on the Caubweb
system, focusing on its visualization component, Caubview. We
describe the relationship between these two systems, how we developed
Caubview by re-using code from the HistoryGraph application, our
results, and our plans for further development. We further describe
our experiences using Tcl/Tk as the development language and
"programming culture" for these applications, and indicate
how ongoing developments in Tcl/Tk have influenced our work. We
conclude with some observations concerning our future use of Tcl/Tk,
and recommendations for ongoing efforts for the Tcl/Tk
