Overview

A practical guide focusing exclusively on Web applications of Tcl/Tk Like Java, Tcl/Tk enables programmers to create programs that can run independent of graphical hardware or operating systems. This makes it a natural for Web developers. Packed with real-world examples, this book reveals how to write a complete browser in the latest version of Tcl, create GUI components, and use Tcl to interact with Java, JavaScript, and CGI/Perl. It also demonstrates how to write Tcl applets, called "Tclets" and provides plug-ins that can handle these applets. Tcl (Tool Command Language) is a scripting language with its own built-in interpreter that can be used to easily develop applications. Tk is the Tcl toolkit for building graphical interfaces. Companion Web site features all code and Tcl applets from the book.

Library Journal
Like Perl, Python, and JavaScript, Tcl is a scripting language that works well for web applications, is essentially free, and is available for most platforms in use today. Unlike Perl, it is also very readable and easy to learn. Holzner provides an excellent introduction to Tcl, as well as to Tk, the interface tool kit for creating buttons, windows, and scrollbars in an application and server-based Tcl scripts for web CGIs (computer gateway interfaces). Great for beginners and intermediate users of Tcl/Tk. Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
