4460Using Object Oriented Tcl and the Tk toolkit together - real life example
There are all sorts of ways to look at the survey data we gathered last October on the TransWilts trains, and one fact I'm particularly interested in is the journey lengths of passengers. I have all the information to hand that I need to work this out - but in different files: Survey data [here] Station ...
4456Objects in Tcl - iTcl - updated first steps example
iTcl is Tcl's Object Oriented package, and it's shipped as standard with Tcl these days. On many of our OO courses, we start off with an example of "train" objects and define and run methods such as "getCapacity" on them, and today I've taken that same example and coded it in Tcl - see [here].

In your code for your base class, ...
1528Object Oriented Tcl
Object Oriented Tcl ([incr-Tcl]) is darned good - but it's only a requirement in a small proportion of the Tcl Training Courses that I give. So it was with real pleasure that I spent some time yesterday writing an example in front of my class in the Nottingham area to show them just how fabulous it ...
656Think about your design even if you don't use full UML
Even if you don't feel that your project is big enough to get involved with formal design methods, many of the lessons of UML and some informal design diagrams can help you get a clear view of what you're going to be doing be for you start, and can help you come up a good, thought out and reliable plan ...
