Fixing those warts would have broken but a small percentage of the extant Tcl code we could see, but meanwhile, Tcl/Tk was already deployed in mission/life-critical uses like running control panel GUIs on oil rigs and Ousterhout wasn't about to fix the warts. I expect most LtU readers write compilers in functional languages, and certainly never C. I know that it is not elegant but I initially wrote this program for very limited purposes. I thought several times about rewriting in Python (or in the Tcl/Tk which I have used more frequently). Even in the mainstream, "scripting languages" are probably more popular. Written by the developer of Tcl and Tk, the text takes a no-nonsense approach to the language, describing the elements of Tcl and Tk in programming-reference-style detail. Paul Boddie: I'm writing applications that access and combine databases in the bioinformatics domain, although I also have an ongoing project dealing with the text-mining of biological and medical literature to extract gene and protein-related information.

Tcl/Tk (which is Sections cover basic and advance programming techniques, specific aspects of Tk widgets, and extending the C library that defines Tcl. So it has lot of limitations :-(. It's king of the world when it comes to building graphical user interfaces (GUIs) for C programs (particularly those running in X Windows environments), which is what the language originally was invented to do. If you are already familiar with a C-like language and want a just-the- facts introduction to Although there are no fully worked out programs, code snippets illustrate how to use control structures and data types. Copious examples make it easier to understand (and quickly employ) effective design strategies. I also have a fair Eventually, I'd seen and at least dabbled with things like Tcl/Tk, Perl (although I learned that at CERN), Python, and Java (which obviously wasn't Free Software at the time).
