Tcl/Tk for Programmers: With Solved Exercises that Work with Unix and Windows
"The book is written for looking things up but do not expect all things to be present. Use your on-line manual if you do not see what you need in the book. Look for additional commands and look for additional ways of using commands that are in the book. There are two reasons you must do this: First, I have omitted some things to prevent the book from becoming deadly dull. Second, Tcl/Tk is constantly changing."
