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.
Issues about running tcl scripts as a testsuite

Posted by sonali.birari (sonali.birari), 14 December 2006
I need to do following thing:

I have 1 tcl script - prereq.tcl (kind of prerequisites, say create user1).

I need to load this before test execution begins.

I have 3 testfiles : testfile1, testfile2,testfile3

each test file looks like this:
source prereq.tcl
...test code goes here...

This way I can execute each testfile independently.

But If I have to run these 3 testfiles in a suite, the tcl script-prereq.tcl will get loaded in each of the testfile execution i.e.
it will create user 3 times.

What my requirement is that:
In the suite, it should first check, if user USER1 is already present. IF yes, then it should skip the 'creation of user part'.

Hope my problem is clear.
