The definitive source of information on the system is John Ousterhout's book, Tcl and the Tk Toolkit, published by Addison-Wesley.

Because Tcl and Tk are so easy to learn, extremely powerful, and contain so many sophisticated features, they have dramatically reduced development time for thousands of X programmers. The definitive source of information on the system is John Ousterhout's book, Tcl and the Tk Toolkit, published by Addison-Wesley. Overall, Ousterhout has provided an excellent overview (Tcl and the Tk Toolkit)of a very useful piece of software.

C interfaces for Tcl and Tk for those readers who wish to extend their built-in features by writing new C commands.

Tcl and the Tk Toolkit offers an introduction and overview of this impressive programming environment, including detailed instructions for script writing in Tcl and working with the Tk toolkit.

The Tcl scripting language and the Tk toolkit, a programming environment for creating graphical user interfaces under X Windows together represent one of the most exciting innovations in X Window System programming. Because Tcl and Tk are so easy to learn, extremely powerful, and contain sophisticated features, they have dramatically reduced development time for thousands of X programmers.Written by the creator of Tcl and Tk, this book is the single authoritative resource for anyone who wants to work with this extraordinary environment. The book offers an introduction and overview of Tcl and Tk and then presents detailed instructions for script writing in Tcl and working with the Tk toolkit.You will discover how Tk's windowing shell, wish, enables you to develop window-based applications with amazingly few lines of code. You will also find information on Tk's novel and powerful facility for linking applications. Many other features are also described, such as Tk's hypertext and hypergraphics widgets and Tcl's facilities for procedures, list management, and subprocess execution.For interested readers, the book also describes the C interfaces for Tcl and Tk, showing how to extend their built-in features by writing new C commands.Upon reading this book, you will learn how to produce far more powerful X Windows System applications in a fraction of the time that used to be required.

I've read other books written by the authors of the language, and found them to be lacking. But this author's book is really well organized, thoughtful, clear, and has great explanations. I was up and running creating widgets, etc. in a matter of no time.

I think this book is more of an instructional guide (and a damn good one too), but I don't believe it is oriented as a reference guide. I know that there were a few gripes on this should be both, but I wouldn't want that. Technology changes, so I prefer references to remain online. Gone are the days to cart a wheel-barrel of reference material for a given project, only to be obsoleted in a few years.

This book opened the doors to the great wonderful world of Tcl/Tk. And I am confident it will help others in years to come.
DEAD-SHOT
Although more detailed books like Welch's 'Practical Programming in Tcl and Tk' are very useful, Ousterhout's original book is still the best way to learn the language. His style is clear and concise, and he covers the core of the language with good examples and thorough explanatory text.
The layout is clean and easy to read, without any space wasted on fancy graphics or eye-candy. Instead, you get clear tables laying out what happens, or listing the commands in a certain functionality area. For example, page 122 has a table I've gone back to many times that lists the different return values from catch.
Even though I have and use other Tcl books, when I just want to check a point of syntax or verify functionality, this is the one I go to. It's an invaluable book for a Tcl/Tk developer.

This is the best tutorial on Tcl/Tk. It is wonderfully clear and well organized.
The book deals with earlier versions of Tcl and Tk but I've yet to run across an example that doesn't work. (I'm sure there are some.)
This book helped me greatly when I decided to learn Tcl/Tk, and it is a pleasure to read.
The author is the creator of Tcl/Tk and a superb educator as well.
The book has a UNIX orientation though I tried on the software on my Windows 98 machine and found that his examples work. He uses the X-windows system as a basis but his explanation of X is so simple and clear I did not find my ignorance of it a problem. Also the Tk I'm using (8.2) on Windows 98 works great with his examples.

This book is very disappointing to use. One one hand, it is well written, and very clear to understand. But on the other hand, it contains *very* little information, almost everything I needed I had to find on the net, or search the man pages. It claims "not to be a reference". Then why buy it at all! I'd rather buy a book which teaches the material *and* contains all the information I need.

I read this book in a matter of days. It flies by quite fast. It lacks examples but I thought it gave me enough information to be able to figure out the other things. Besides by working out problems do you learn best and this book gives you the basics to do that. Explains well and doesn't go on and on and on. Good starter if you want to learn Tcl/Tk

It is an excellent start to learn tcl and tk. I purchase other books, but they are more advanced than I would like to start with. Many of my co-workers recommand this book to me.

I purchased this book in 1994 and it is still one of the most used books in my office. I'm probably going to get a second copy. It has everything a TCL/Tk programmer needs to get started, learn about more advanced features, and create your own low-level commands for TCL. Most of the other good TCL/Tk books reference this one... and why not it's by the man who created TCL/Tk, John K. Ousterhout.

This is a very good book to learn tcl/tk. It is a little dated, but the language is covered very well. Start with this one.
