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.
Shortened interactive commands

In Tcl, if you're working in interactive mode you can abbreviate the commands you type in, as long as your commands remain unique. So instead of puts you can write put or even pu ... but if you try to run just the p command you'll get

% p hello
ambiguous command name "p": package pid proc puts pwd
%


If you're running from a a file of Tcl commands, though, you need to specify the command name in full - puts.
