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.

Hello All,

Does anybody know about SCSI extension to TCL? I need to be able to send low level SCSI commands (like inquery/read10/read16 etc) from TCL.

Any help will be appreciated.

Goodness - what on earth are you doing?   I would tend to look at hooking in some C routines to Tcl and using Tcl as the controlling command language - the sort of thing that Tcl was designed for.   I don't personally know of anyone who's done it with SCSI already though

Hi Graham,

Thanks for the answer.

I try to have a multiplatform tool to test SCSI low level. I do have some "home made" C library that implements such commands and it is hooked with tcl. Two problems with that: 1. The library is not complete and doesn't cover the whole range of commands. 2. Non-portable.
I already have quite a few scripts written on this "hooked" tcl, so if I could find some standard extension, it'd be very helpful.

I would persevre with your C;  sorry - but device drivers are not going to be portable across operating systems.  I know it would be nice if someone had already written complete different suites for each major OS, but if they have I haven't come across it .... but then, I'm a specialist on open source languages and not SCSI
