Specialized Systems Consultants, Inc. (SSC) announced the publication of the Tcl Pocket Reference and the Tk Pocket Reference. The Tcl (“tickle”) Reference describes Tcl 7.3; the Tk (“tee-kay”) Reference describes Tk version 4.0. Tcl is a small, embeddable, extensible scripting language. Tk is a Toolkit of widgets, which are graphical objects similar to those of other GUI toolkits such as Xlib, Xview and Motif. When Tcl and Tk are used together, the Tcl/Tk programming system can be used to rapidly build useful applications (such as adding X-based front-ends). The Tcl and Tk References are sold individually for $3.00 each or together as a package (ISBN: 0-916151-80-8) for $4.50.
