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.

Are you running active Tcl on a Linux system or a Windows system?

I am running it on windows system , I wanted to know how to use & and if - also has to be preceeded with anything ?

Thanks, this is a very helpful site

Tclsh will be using the underlying shell.   I'm not a Windows expert though - I don't know how / if you even can run jobs in the background at the Dos prompt, but if you can, that will be the syntax you want.
