From the Publisher
This book is a practical, comprehensive tutorial for programming in the TCL scripting language and the TL X toolkit that is based on TCL, which provides a Motif-like look-and-feel without much of Motif's complexity. The book provides a comprehensive introduction to Tcl programming, including tips on problem areas and strategies for effective use of the language. The examples demonstrate how to use the toolkit features, and are useful in their own right for programmers constructing new applications.
