Experience with Tcl/Tk for Scientific and Engineering Visualization

Brian W. Kernighan

AT&T Bell Laboratories


This paper relates experience gained while building a graphical user interface for a system that helps design and implement indoor wireless communications facili- ties. In this paper, I will describe this interface briefly, and draw some conclusions about what works well and what does not. I will also compare Tcl/Tk with Visual Basic for the same application.
