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.
Looping down rather than up

Posted by enquirer (enquirer), 17 July 2003
I was wondering how you deincrement a FOR loop in tcl.  For example, if I have p = 10 and I want a FOR loop that keeps deincrementing p by 1 each time through the loop until p = 0.  I know about the incr command in FOR loops in tcl, but is there an opposite of this?

If you add an extra parameter onto the end of the incr command, that's the amount you increment by.  It can be any whole number, including -1 which will thus make it a decrement:
          incr  myvar  -1
