Training will start with an overview of Tcl, the basis of
the Glyph scripting language. Tcl syntax will be described
in detail, as will control structures, procedures (user
defined functions), lists/arrays, error handling, and
other useful features. In-class examples and hands-on
exercises will be used to highlight important details.
Although designed for introductory scriptwriters, more
seasoned Glyph users will learn more about the details of
Tcl and get a useful review of Tcl basics.
The training seminar will continue with a session on the
application of Tcl to Glyph scriptwriting. There will be
an overview of the most useful Glyph commands, and several
examples of scripts analyzed in detail. Scripts for
initializing Gridgen default settings and user preferences
and for automating grid project start-up will also be
The early afternoon session will cover the latest
developments and features in Gridgen. The final session
of the day reviews Tk, Tcl's graphical toolkit for
creating user interfaces. The commands needed to create
GUI panels and to make those panels functional will be
demonstrated, emphasizing examples directly applicable for
use with Gridgen. Attendees will get to try their hand at
creating panels with in-class tutorials.
