Who this book is for:
This book was written for novice programmers -- to introduce them to the ease and power of Tcl/Tk and to show how amazing Web applications, such as interactive Web applets, Web browsers, Web servers, autonomous agents, client/server databases, browser-pull, and server push applications can be quickly built using Tcl/Tk, without the developer having to get a degree in computer science (or grow old) in the process. All of the examples in the book will run identically, without modification, on Windows, Mac and UNIX systems. The book is also for all of us who bought Visual Basic in the early '90s, hoping to find an easy-to-use tool for building our own interactive applications, only to find that VB just gathered dust on our shelves because it was much more difficult to use than we had hoped. Tcl/Tk finally provides the solution that we've been looking for.
