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.

           'm using vi editor to type my tcl scripts. Whatever statement i type in the third row of the editor is not being executed. could anyone point the reason?
these are the first 2 lines,
#!/bin/sh -d
# \

Thank you,

The \ on the end of the second line - which is a comment - means that the next line is an extension of it.   In other words it's an extension to the comment - so it does nothing.
