how to learn tcl in windows

Hi, Kalex
I think pearl maybe is perl, but perl is little useful in today EDA tools than tcl/tck. So mastering Tcl is O.K.

It's Perl . Both Perl and Tcl/Tk are equal important in EDA business. If you chose EDA as your career field, you need to study both.

best tcl book

Perl can be very useful in the EDA world. It is THE best language for parsing text files, finding the data that you're interested in, and presenting in a useful manner.

If you learn Perl, understand it's regular expression support for pattern matching and understand associative arrays. Once you understand those, you'll be amazed at how quickly you can find and display relevant data from within a text file.

learn tcl scripting

If you want I can upload two good books on Tcl/Tk programming:
The first one is the very famous book from the main developer of this scripting language. and I don't remember it's name.
second is practical programming with tcl/tk , which I think is essential for every one who wants to write good scripts.

tclpro1.4 download

Here's an old Tcl/Tk book (1993) that should still be good enough to get you started.

The examples file is in unix format, so if you have a windows editor that doesn't understand unix text files, it will appear to have no end of line characters.

learn tcl pdf

All resources are free: interpreter and libraries can be found in previous links.

In my opinion, the best package (help included) is the one provided by ActiveTcl: it`s a free, binary distribution of Tcl for Linux, Solaris, and Windows, and it is in

***.activestate.c0m/Products/ActiveTcl/

Regards

best book to learn tcl

I use the tclPro1.4 . It's free to register . The debbuger have the general programing debugging capabilities like step and set break point to assist you to find the bugs in tcl/tk .
