installing tcl path

So TCL is installed on your windows.  Now we will set path of C:\Tcl\bin\ directory so, we can run it from any location.

To set path just copy the path up to bin directory ( In my case it is C:Tcl\bin\ ) and fire command like this

set tcl path windows

Path is set so we can run TCL from any location. Lets try to run it from D drive. First create one small TCL and save it on D drive with name Hello.tcl . So the path is D:\Hello.tcl

tcl in notepad

To run this file open command prompt and go to path D: and execute command tclsh Hello.tcl like this .

running tcl

It will print output Hello World !
