Effective Tcl/Tk Programming : Writing Better Programs in Tcl and Tk (Addison-Wesley Professional Computing Series) ;
by Mark Harrison, Michael J. McLennan
- Tcl/Tk is graphical user interface that runs on multiple platforms! If you don't have much time, and you're not a wizard with X/Motif, the Win32 GUI, or the Mac GUI, then Tcl/Tk is the solution. The authors develop numerous applications and a library of reusable components. Learn from their approach, follow their strategies, and steal their code for your own applications. You can download all the source code at the Effective Tcl/Tk Programming Web site: http://www.awl.com/cseng/books/efftcl/
Take the next step with Tcl/Tk development with this practical programming style guide. The Tcl scripting language and the Tk toolkit
together create a programming environment for creating graphical user interfaces under the X Window System and MS Windows 95/NT.
This book offers a wealth of practical information on how to exploit the full potential of this remarkable programming environment.
Interactive Web Applications With Tcl/Tk;
by Hattie Schroeder, et al
- This book was written for novice programmers -- to introduce them to the ease and power of Tcl/Tk and to show how amazing Web
applications, such as interactive Web applets, Web browsers, Web servers, autonomous agents, client/server databases, browser-pull,
and server push applications can be quickly built using Tcl/Tk, without the developer having to get a degree in computer science (or grow
old) in the process. All of the examples in the book will run identically, without modification, on Windows, Mac and UNIX systems. The
book is also for all of us who bought Visual Basic in the early '90s, hoping to find an easy-to-use tool for building our own interactive
applications, only to find that VB just gathered dust on our shelves because it was much more difficult to use than we had hoped. Tcl/Tk
finally provides the solution that we've been looking for.
Graphical Applications With Tcl and Tk;
by Eric Foster-Johnson, Johnson Eric Foster
- Tcl, the tool command language, has captured the hearts and minds of tens of thousands of software developers worldwide. It's an
easy-to-learn scripting language that runs on Windows, UNIX, and Macintosh. Best of all, it's free. An associated toolkit called Tk
allows you to quickly create graphical applications that can run on multiple platforms without delving into arcane subjects like Win32,
QuickDraw, Object Linking and Embedding, Motif, and the X Toolkit Intrinsics.
With a surprisingly small amount of code, you'll quickly create cross-platform graphical applications. This newly updated Graphical
Applications with Tcl & Tk, Second Edition will teach you the basics of the syntax and show you how to start writing menus, opening
dialog boxes, and loading GIF images. With a focus on portable cross-platform scripts, user interface style guides, and clear, practical
examples, this book allows you to get the most out of Tcl/Tk. This newly expanded second edition covers all the latest developments in
Tcl/Tk, including Windows native widgets, a byte-code compiler, and built-in networking capability.
* Runs on Windows 95, Windows 3.1, Windows NT, UNIX, Linux, and Mac
* Load GIF and XBM images with one line of code
* Create HTML viewers
* Embed the Tcl interpreter inside your applications to create a user extension language
* Extend the Tcl language with your commands written in C and C++
* Test your C++ applications using the power of Tcl
Practical Programming in Tcl & Tk;
by Brent B. Welch
- The author writes great short programs to illustrate the features of Tcl. In particular one may point to pages 188-9, "The Echo Service."
Another really short and useful program is on page 128, "URL Decoding."
Without this book one might have thought that Tcl, like some other scripting languages, was verbose and opaque, but Welch shows how short and clear it is, and how powerful. Another really short and useful program is on page 128, "URL Decoding."
Tcl/Tk Unleashed (Red Hat Press);
by Paul Raines, Gigi Estabrook
- With its comprehensive coverage, "TCL/TK Unleashed" is an indispensable reference for the UNIX, LINUX, and X Windows operating
system programmers. This title fulfills the need in the market for a single, complete, easily readable book on the topic. The CD-ROM
contains tools, utilities and source code from the book.
