TCL Wise - Guide to the TCL Programming Language
"this book is an introduction to the main ideas of the Tcl programming language: If you wish to learn a simple and powerful programming language, this book is for you. To read this book, the only prior knowledge needed is some basic understanding of programming in any language: from C, to Python, Perl, Lisp, if you understand the meaning of function and variable and other basic concepts you should not experience problems continuing to read. Why Tcl? Because it's a simple and general programming language, that can be used with success to develop applications in short time. Tcl is a programmable programming language, as you will discover later. There are few ideas inside, that it's possible to combine to create programs, and to extend the language in itself in order to attack programming problems in a very direct way."
