For 2021 - online Python 3 training - see ((here)).

Our plans were to retire in summer 2020 and see the world, but Coronavirus has lead us into a lot of lockdown programming in Python 3 and PHP 7.
We can now offer tailored online training - small groups, real tutors - works really well for groups of 4 to 14 delegates. Anywhere in the world; course language English.

Please ask about private 'maintenance' training for Python 2, Tcl, Perl, PHP, Lua, etc.
CGI server side Tcl script

Posted by admin (Graham Ellis), 26 September 2004
Had a couple of questions about server side Tcl scripts running through CGI ... so here's an example.   You can run it through


set params [split $env(QUERY_STRING) &]
foreach par $params {
   set pair [split $par =]
   set name [lindex $pair 0]
   set value [lindex $pair 1]
   regsub -all \\\+ $value " " value
   regsub -all -nocase {%([0-9a-f][0-9a-f])} $value \
   {[format %c 0x\1]} value
   set form($name) [subst $value]
puts {content-type: text/html

<head><title>This is a Tcl script demo</title></head>
<body bgcolo = white><h1>Tcl Script running through CGI</h1>
<form>Please enter a string in which to look for
<input name=haystack><input type=submit></form><br>

if {[info exists form(haystack)]}  {
       if {[regexp {\.co\.nz} $form(haystack)]} {
               puts "$form(haystack) contains"
       } else {
               puts "Nothing from New Zealand found in $form(haystack)"
} else {
       puts "Your answer will appear here"

puts {
