The Web is rapidly shifting from static sites to dynamic, interactive and animated sites. This book introduces the Tcl/Tk scripting language as a viable Web application development tool. It presents the fundamentals of programming with Tcl/Tk, and equips the reader with applications that take advantage of the Internet environment. The final chapters include advanced applications using the Spynergy Tcl/Tk libraries found on the enclosed CD-ROM, and incorporate PGP signatures. The CD-ROM contains a variety of examples and tools which allow readers either to build on basic applications or use the lessons in the book to build a "weblet" from scratch. Also included on the CD-ROM is the "Ed Tcl Code Editor," an editing and testing application written entirely in Tcl/Tk, which allows web developers to cut, copy, paste, search, and test code merely by pressing a button.
* Special emphasis is placed on secure interactive applications and PGP
* Chapters range from how to create text and graphic animations to how to build a complete web browser in Tcl/Tk
* CD-ROM runs on UNIX/ISO-9660 (all platforms) and Windows, and contains sample tools, programming utilities and sample code, as well as "Ed Tcl Code Editor"
