v0.2, 07 November 1998
This document describes the Linux approach to Tcl, a scripting langua
It is an easy to learn interpreted language that uses a typeless approach to
achieve a higher level of programming and a rapid application development.
The Tk toolkit is a programming environment for creating graphical user interf
(GUI) under X Window System. Their capabilities include the possibility to
extend and embed in other application, rapid development and ease of use. Toge
Tcl and Tk provide many benefits both to application developer and user. Tk-ba
interfaces tend to be much more customizable and dynamic than those built with
one of the C or C++ based toolkits. Tk implements the Motif look and feel.
A great number of interesting X applications are implemented entirely in Tk,
with no new application-specific commands at all.
