"Tcl/Tk Tools" from O'Reilly

                        TCL/TK TOOLS
                      By Mark Harrison
   678 pages, ISBN: 1-56592-218-2, $49.95 (US), Includes CD-ROM

We've just released "Tcl/Tk Tools," the
first book to cover the  extensions that provide "industrial strength"
to the Tcl scripting language and its complement, the Tk toolkit.
Tcl/Tk offers many benefits--it's easy to learn, capable of producing
good interfaces quickly, great for prototyping applications, and
infinitely customizable. One of Tcl/Tk's strong suits is the range of
extensions written for it, and "Tcl/Tk Tools" provides a thorough guide
to the most popular and robust of these extensions. The book goes
straight to the source--it features all-new documentation written by
the extension authors and leaders of the Tcl/Tk community.  Lead author
Mark Harrison imbues the book with O'Reilly's eminently readable style,
and Tcl/Tk creator John Ousterhout contributes the foreword.

"Tcl/Tk Tools" shows you how to use Tcl/Tk extensions to:
 - Write robust object-oriented programs ([incr Tcl] and [incr Tk])
 - Produce complex interfaces with one-line commands ([incr Widgets]
   and Tix)
 - Layout graphs and tables (BLT)
 - Display 3D graphics with rich textures (TSIPP)
 - Interact with Oracle and Sybase databases (Sybtcl and Oratcl)
 - Network over sockets and remote procedure calls (Tcl-DP)
 - Create collaborative multi-user environments (GroupKit)
 - Automate programs that call for human users (expect)
 - Use complex data structures and UNIX system calls (TclX)
 - Embed Tk calls in C programs (ET)
 - Display tree structures (Tree)
 - Replay and prototype user interactions (TKReplay)

In addition to documenting these useful and widely used extensions,
"Tcl/Tk Tools" covers configuration, debugging, and other important
tasks. The book comes with a CD-ROM that includes Tcl/Tk, the
extensions, and other tools documented in the text, both in source form
and as binaries for Solaris and Linux.
