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.
I want see content of folder

Posted by vitantonio (vitantonio), 3 July 2003
Which's TCL code for see the content of a folder?

Posted by admin (Graham Ellis), 3 July 2003
You're looking for the glob command - for example

[graham@penguin graham]$ tcl
tcl>glob *
public_html.tar.gz nsmail tocow.tar.gz selena.tar ecs ecs.tar
[graham@penguin graham]$

Thanx for answer.
I put this code:

set glo [ glob * ]
puts $glo

but I can see only files of the my desktop, I need see files of hard disk c:\.
another thing, please, is possible make a "wrap line" in the windows TCL output?


Posted by admin (Graham Ellis), 5 July 2003
You can put a path / directory name into glob as a parameter; if you're going to write that in Windows style, you'll possibly need to double up the \ so that it gets through the command interpretter.

Ok perfect!!
Now I can see files into various folders.
I download a Freewrap 5.5 program. It's a good program? Or there's a simple code TCL for wrap line in window TCL output?

Best Regards
