Tcl embeds

Tcl is perhaps the most "niche" language in which we provide training courses - and also perhaps the oldest. It's used as an embedded language - being written into larger pieces of software to provide a tailoring capability for the users. This means that typical users are required to write just a few lines of Tcl (rather than a complete application), and many of them are programming novices - our public Tcl course is unusual in that we get trainees without prior programming knowledge, and the course is designed and paced to suit them. Tcl is also a little unusual in that we run a lot more private courses than public ones, as trainees often come in groups rather than being "singletons".

Amongst the systems that use embedded Tcl are Vignette (through their VCMS adaptor), UG (Post Builder), Cloverleaf (where callouts are made to Tcl procedures) and Radia (formerly Novadigm, now part of HP). Add to that list a number of applications in the IC and circuit design industries, and I think you'll find that Tcl will be around, thinly spread but important, for years to come.

This is a page archived from The Horse's Mouth at http://www.wellho.net/horse/ - the diary and writings of Graham Ellis. Every attempt was made to provide current information at the time the page was written, but things do move forward in our business - new software releases, price changes, new techniques. Please check back via our main site for current courses, prices, versions, etc - any mention of a price in "The Horse's Mouth" cannot be taken as an offer to supply at that price.
