Hi, just got a summer job through my dad. Apparently I have to do some programming, write a program to do testing :S :P I found out that I need to know Tcl. Does anyone have any experience with it? Can you offer any tips? Tutorials? Things to read? Anything else? Ben

Yes. It's quite horrible and not at all like most languages, unless you're used to UNIX scripting. It's really a scripting language for programmers, and exists largely to glue bits of an application together. As such, it integrates easily, but has no concessions to usability. I advise you to get a reference book.

Are there any reference books online? I'm leaving on monday, and don't have time to order a book; it won't get here in time.

The official Tcl tutorial is available at http://www.tcl.tk/man/tcl8.5/tutorial/tcltutorial.html. Be warned, the language works almost entirely by string replacement, so it's quite different from other mainstream languages - plus, a good amount of the language is actually syntactic sugar. As well, the company may also use a different version of Tcl: This is fairly common practice depending what the interpreter is being deployed on, and what kind of testing you'll be doing.
