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.
code coverage tool for tcl / tk

Posted by arvindpal (arvindpal), 26 June 2009

I am looking for a decent code coverage tool to capture   tcl / tk code coverage lines (like purecov for c/c++). Has anybody used one or can suggest me one.

I'm not sure if such a tool is feasible, since tcl is a pure interpretted language .  How would you show coverage of variable code like this:

set count 1
foreach type {if while} {
       $type {$count < 5} {
               puts "yay $type $count"
               incr count

(and I could engineer some worse examples!)

Try coverity for coverage...alenatively you could use nagelfar for debugging tcl scripts. [#3840]
