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.
Silencing output from Tcl (silencing set?)

Posted by doublea1535 (doublea1535), 1 August 2006
I want to silence the set command.

expect1.1> set variable string

I want to silence Tcl from echoing back to me the value of a variable that has just been set. I played around with:

stty -echo



to no avail...

You'll find that it becomes silent automatically once you include it in a script - it's just that with the interactive mode prompt, the result of each Tcl command is echoed to the screen.
