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.

  • Covers Tcl and Tk 8.0
  • 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
  • Scads of useful examples

CD-ROM includes Windows version of Tcl/Tk 8.0, source code for Windows, Macintosh and UNIXversions, and loads of Tcl contributed freeware.
