For 2023 - we are now fully retired from IT training.
We have made many, many friends over 25 years of teaching about Python, Tcl, Perl, PHP, Lua, Java, C and C++ - and MySQL, Linux and Solaris/SunOS too. Our training notes are now very much out of date, but due to upward compatability most of our examples remain operational and even relevant ad you are welcome to make us if them "as seen" and at your own risk.

Lisa and I (Graham) now live in what was our training centre in Melksham - happy to meet with former delegates here - but do check ahead before coming round. We are far from inactive - rather, enjoying the times that we are retired but still healthy enough in mind and body to be active!

I am also active in many other area and still look after a lot of web sites - you can find an index ((here))
Test piece! - what a test!

A further test piece;  next stuff is a quote:

New this summer, we've added a lounge / diner to our student
facilities so that you can arrive early to read the paper and
watch the morning news, or stay on socially after the course
to get to know your fellow trainees better.   This expansion
also means that we can be more flexible with our lunch
arrangements, especially on larger courses.

And a piece of code:


# tracing a variable - example

proc watch {varname key op} {
       if {$key != ""} {
               set varname ${varname}($key)
       upvar $varname var
       puts "$varname is $var (operation $op)"

# ---------------------------------------
trace variable value w watch
trace variable value r watch
# ---------------------------------------

puts -nonewline "Give me a big number: "
flush stdout

gets stdin value

while {$value > 100} {
       set value [expr $value / 2 - 2]

puts "final value is $value"
