    Shows how to program the cgi-bin with C++ and C for more powerful connectivity to the Internet. This book provides methods to link the power of compiled languages into Internet interfaces. CGI programs are the only way to obtain advanced server side capabilities and by using C++ and C, real computer control from the Internet can be achieved/5(6).   Up to this point, we have exclusively used the Tcl shell and its command set. While this is a wonderful method for writing scripts and non-graphical programs, it fails to provide the end user with a Graphical User Interface (GUI) to interact allow for the creation and control of GUI and window elements, Tcl includes the Graphical Tool Kit (Tk).Released on: Febru

CGI programming with Tcl by David Maggiano Download PDF EPUB FB2

CGI Programming with Tcl illustrates the many advantages Tcl holds for CGI programmers and demonstrates how to create powerful CGI applications.

This book presents a series of increasingly sophisticated applications, beginning with a simple Hello World application and culminating in Web-based interfaces to back-end databases such as Oracle.5/5(1). The Common Gateway Interface (CGI) is an essential technology for the development of interactive Web pages.

This rapidly growing field is one of the hottest areas of Internet development, and the Tool Command Language (Tcl) is ideally suited for all aspects of CGI Author: David Maggiano.

Format: Paperback This book is a comprehensive reference to CGI programming in Tcl and using the Tcl browser plugin. It is very accessible and should appeal to a wide audience, from beginners who have never written a CGI script to more advanced users who need to develop industrial-strength CGI scripts and the occasional Tclet.5/5(1).

Tcl is gaining popularity as a CGI programming language. Tcl consists of a shell, tclsh, which can be used to execute your scripts. Like Perl, tclsh also contains simple constructs, but is a bit more difficult to learn and use for the novice programmer.

Like Perl, Tcl. The new edition of Practical Programming in Tcl and Tk covers Tclparticularly its versatile new Virtual File System (VFS) capabilities that allow you to include FTP sites and other remote directories in ordinary File Save and File Open interfaces. Further new coverage goes to Starkits, with which you can bundle Tcl/Tk programs for deployment, and some new Tk by: is the CGI support library for Tcl programmers.

The library is very thorough - it supports forms, tables, cookies, file upload, plug-ins, JavaScript, Netscape extensions, etc, etc.

It also provides very convenient support for debugging and handling CGI errors. Tcl is a scripting language created by John Ousterhout. It can be used interactively, or by running scripts (programs) which can use a package system for structuring, hence allowing to do much with little code.

This book discusses the GUI toolkit Tk in considerable extent, even though it's not in the title. For most users, Tcl/Tk form a single conceptual entity. You can also use Tcl scripts with CGI, though the extensions to Tcl described in Chapter 5 of the AOLserver Tcl Developer's Guide are not available through CGI.

With AOLserver, you have the option of using the embedded Tcl and C interfaces instead of CGI. Typically, the Tcl and C interfaces provide better performance than CGI. Tcl is a general-purpose language and you can find Tcl everywhere.

It includes, Scalable websites that are often backed by databases. High performance web servers build with TclHttpd. Tcl with CGI based websites. Desktop GUI applications. Embedded applications. Tcl – Overview. The rest of Part I covers basic programming with Tcl. Simple string pro-cessing is covered in Chapter 4.

Tcl lists, which share the syntax rules of Tcl com-mands, are explained in Chapter 5. Control structure like loops and if statements are described in Chapter 6.

Chapter 7 describes Tcl procedures, which are new commands that you write in Size: 1MB. Practical Programming in Tcl and Tk () by Welch and Jones is an authoritative textbook on both Tcl and Tk, with enough in-depth coverage to satisfy even experienced programmers. Chapter1 describes the fundamental properties of the language.

Chapter 2 is a short introduction to running Tcl and Tk on UNIX, Windows and Macintosh systems. Chapter 3 presents a sample application, a CGI script, that implements a guestbook for a Web site. The rest of this book covers basic programming with Tcl.

Author(s): Yuanzhu Chen. Chapter 2 is a short introduction to running Tcl and Tk on UNIX, Windows and Macintosh systems. Chapter 3 presents a sample application, a CGI script, that implements a guestbook for a Web site. The rest of this book covers basic programming with Tcl. Scripting languages such as Perl and Tcl represent a very different style of programming than system programming languages such as C or JavaTM.

Scripting languages are designed for "gluing" applications; they use typeless approaches to achieve a higher level of programming and more rapid application development than system programming languages. Tcl Programming. Tcl is a scripting language created by John Ousterhout.

It can be used interactively, or by running scripts (programs) which can use a package system for structuring, hence allowing to do much with little code.

Web Programming in Tcl In this chapter, we will introduce you to concepts related to web programming in Tcl. To be more specific, server-side web programming—processing the requests coming from clients via the HTTP protocol and responding to these requests.

Chapter 3: CGI Environment Variables. Environment variables are a series of hidden values that the web server sends to every CGI program you run. Your program can parse them and use the data they send.

Environment variables are stored in a hash named %ENV. Tcl (Tool Command Language) is a dynamic programming/scripting language based on concepts of Lisp, C, and Unix shells. It can be used interactively, or by running scripts (programs) which can use a package system for structuring, hence allowing to do much with little code.

Ousterhout's book Tcl and the Tk Toolkit, described on the Tcl/Tk Information page. Introduction to Tcl Tcl was originally intended to be a reusable command language. Tcl (Tool Command Language) is a very powerful and easy to learn dynamic programming language, suitable for a very wide range of uses.

Tcl is regarded as one of the best-kept secrets in the software industry. This book gives you a hands-on experience on Tcl, helping you develop network-aware applications using this mature yet evolving language.e-books in Tcl/Tk Programming category Tcl for Web Nerds by Hal Abelson, Philip Greenspun, Lydia Sandon, We hope that a professional programmer or MIT student can breeze through this book in one evening.

By the end of the evening, that person should have learned Tcl, learned a little something about the Web, and not have been bored.Debugging and Testing CGI Applications The hardest aspect of developing CGI applications on the Web is the testing/debugging phase. The main reason for the difficulty is that applications are - Selection from CGI Programming on the World Wide Web [Book].
