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.
Executing a Tcl script from within a Tcl dialog

Posted by rpmorrow (rpmorrow), 30 July 2008

I am wanting to allow Tcl Commands to be run from within my Tcl program. For example if a command is typet into a text entry field, it should be executed. I also want to be able to load a file and execute the whole thing.

I've seen mantions of Tcl_Eval but I can't seem to get anything to work, does anyone have a simple example I can see that wil execute commands stored in $commandString or $fileHandle for example.

Cheers, Rich

Just use ....

eval $commandString
