Product description

From the Back Cover

The Tcl scripting language and the Tk toolkit - a programming environment for creating graphical user interfaces under X Windows - together represent one of the most exciting innovations in X Window System programming. Because Tcl and Tk are so easy to learn, extremely powerful, and contain so many sophisticated features, they have dramatically reduced development time for thousands of X programmers.

Written by the creator of Tcl and Tk, this book is the single authoritative resource for anyone who wants to work with this extraordinary environment. The book offers an introduction and overview of Tcl and Tk and then presents detailed instructions for script writing in Tcl and working with the Tk toolkit.

You will discover how Tk's windowing shell, wish, enables you to develop window-based applications with amazingly few lines of code. You will also find information on Tk's novel and powerful facility for linking applications. Many other features are also described, such as Tk's hypertext and hypergraphics widgets and Tcl's facilities for procedures, list management, and subprocess execution.

For interested readers, the book also describes the C interfaces for Tcl and Tk, showing how to extend their built-in features by writing new C commands.

Upon reading this book, you will learn how to produce far more powerful X Windows System applications in a fraction of the time that used to be required.

"The main guide to Tcl is Tcl and the Tk Toolkit by John Ousterhout (Reading, MA: Addison-Wesley, 1994), the creator of Tcl."
- Unix Review

"The definitive source of information on the system is John Ousterhout's book, Tcl and the Tk Toolkit, published by Addison-Wesley."
- Linux Journal

"Overall, Ousterhout has provided an excellent overview (Tcl and the Tk Toolkit)of a very useful piece of software. If you're thinking of building or customizing a graphical user interface, you won't find many guides better than this."
- IEEE Computer

"This is an extremely well-written book, containing many figures, tables, examples, and scripts to illustrate the Tcl and Tk concepts. His presentation technique and expertise result in a superb text. I enjoyed Tcl and the Tk Toolkit and recommend it highly to anyone with any shell writing experience. Everyone who uses the X Window System will find this book helpful."
- Sys Admin

Format: Paperback
I purchased this book in 1994 and it is still one of the most used books in my office. I'm probably going to get a second copy. It has everything a TCL/Tk programmer needs to get started, learn about more advanced features, and create your own low-level commands for TCL. Most of the other good TCL/Tk books reference this one... and why not it's by the man who created TCL/Tk, John K. Ousterhout.

Currently being a Computer Science major and enrolled in a GUI programming class teaching Tcl/Tk, I had to use the "Tcl and the TK Toolkit" as a textbook. I found it to be lacking in thoroughness and elaboration on most of the widgets. It is good for newbies and not bad as a reference.

The book is very good, and I have started learning TCL with it. I wish it went more in depth into TCLETs and explained in more depth about compiling. Also, I wish more information of TCL for Windows users was given.

An excellent book. Easy to read, good practicle examples, clear concise discussion of each subject. Quite simply the best book on Tcl/Tk around even if it doesn't cover all the nuts and bolts.
