T2am Embedding Tcl in C/C++ Applications [Tutorials at a Glance]
D. Richard Hipp, Hwaci
Who should attend: This tutorial is useful for anyone who wants to mix Tcl or Tcl/Tk with C or C++ in a single application. Participants should be familiar with C/C++ programming and have at least some experience in writing Tcl/Tk scripts.
These days, most people think of Tcl/Tk as a programming language, but Tcl was originally created as a C library, and it remains by far the best C library ever invented for building user interfaces.
This tutorial will describe how to use Tcl/Tk as a library instead of as a language.
Since 1994, D. Richard Hipp has been writing C/C++ programs that embed Tcl/Tk. He has written numerous publicly available Tcl extensions, libraries, and programming tools, including Embedded Tk, MkTclApp, PtTcl, TkHtml, and Plot3D. He is one of the co-authors of Tcl/Tk Tools (O'Reilly & Associates). Richard has a Ph.D. in Computer Science from Duke University (1992) and is a founder of Hwaci, a software development consulting firm based in Charlotte, N.C.
