Print versionThe print version is available from Amazon in USA/Canada and their European sites including UK, Germany, France, Spain and Italy. The print book is priced at $34.95 on Amazon USA. Prices outside the US/Canada will vary based on exchange rates, VAT and other taxes. If you like the book, positive reviews on Amazon are greatly appreciated.You can also purchase the book directly from CreateSpace although you will not save any money and shipping charges might be rather high if you do not live in North America.
Print and Ebook bundleUnfortunately, because of the different distribution methods (Amazon and Gumroad), there is no print+ebook bundle. However, if you are interested in both formats, you can avail of a discount with the following procedure:
- If you buy the print version first, send an email with the invoice/order no. (no need for the whole receipt) to apnmbx-wits at yahoo and I will send back a coupon for $10 off on the Ebook at Gumroad. This method is particularly recommended for non-US customers.
- If you buy the Ebook, you should automatically receive an email within a day with a coupon code for $10 off the print version. However, this coupon can only be used on CreateSpace, not Amazon as the latter has no such facility. Unfortunately, non-US customers may incur higher shipping charges but that's the best I can do for now.

The Tcl Programming Language is a comprehensive guide to the current version (8.6) of this immensely flexible and versatile language. Starting with the basic features, it expands its scope to include the more advanced concepts, facilities and programming idioms from which the language derives its power. * Begin with the basics of Tcl syntax and commands for operating on data. * Get acquainted with the flexible and uniform execution model that enables metaprogramming, custom control structures etc. * Learn to modularize your code with namespaces, object-oriented design and packages. * See how intrinsic support for Unicode and encodings makes it a breeze to localize your applications. * Become conversant with the integrated event loop and how it facilitates efficient asynchronous I/O models and the reactive style of programming. * Delve into Tcl's sophisticated I/O framework and write your own reflected channels, transforms and virtual file systems. * Understand the built-in facilities for inter-process communication using pipes or the network. * See how concurrent programming facilities like coroutines and threads can simplify your code and make it more performant. * Learn how to secure your application through the use of safe interpreters for sandboxing. * Interact with databases through the Tcl Database Connectivity interface. * Discover how software distribution and installation headaches are eliminated with starkits and single file deployment. The breadth of coverage and numerous examples will familiarize newcomers to every aspect of Tcl programming. At the same time, the depth and level of detail, and an exhaustive index, make The Tcl Programming Language a valuable reference in every Tcl programmer's bookshelf.
