Build network-aware applications using Packt's new Tcl book

July 2010 | Networking & Telephony, Open Source

Packt is pleased to announce Tcl 8.5 Network Programming, a new book that helps readers develop network-aware applications with the Tcl language. Written by Wojciech Kocjan and Piotr Beltowski, this book focuses not only on the implementation of network protocols in Tcl, but also on the key aspects of Tcl programming.

 

Tcl (Tool Command Language) is a very powerful but easy to learn, dynamic programming language, suitable for a very wide range of uses like web and desktop applications, networking, administration, testing and many more. Open source and business-friendly, it is commonly used for rapid prototyping, scripted applications, GUIs and testing.

Tcl 8.5 Network Programming helps developers use the Metakit database as a normal file system through the VFS feature, as well as use the Tcl code as legacy CGI scripts in order to improve it with ncgi package. They will learn to handle SNMP using the Tcl package Scotty for inspecting devices and discovering systems within their network. They will also learn to create SOAP services using Tclhttpd and Web Services for Tcl.

This book starts off with basic topics like syntax and fundamental commands of the language, and then moves ahead with more important Tcl features such as object-oriented programming, packaging in TCL and multi-threaded applications. Towards the end of the book, developers will learn to secure their networked applications, build public key infrastructure into their application and use Tcl’s safe interpreter feature, in order to reduce risk of running code from unknown source.

Tcl developers with basic network programming concepts, willing to add networking capabilities to their applications will find this book a beneficial and interesting read. For more information, please visit: - www.packtpub.com/tcl-8-5-network-programming/book
