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.
Perl code can be embedded in Tcl?

if possible, how?

on unix/linux platform, Perl is used as a popular script language to perform everyday task.
Also in some other environments, such as testing communication devices, we use Tcl to complete many automatic testing tasks.
So I want to know if Perl and Tcl can invoke each other or not. I'm just curious.

They can invoke each other via "shell" or 'exec" type commands - in other words, you can run a Tcl program from within a Perl one and  vice versa, just as you can cross-run any language.   However, I don't think they embed in one another in quite the way that you can embed Python in Java to get Jython.

thank you,  Graham.
