About this document

This document is the user guide for XOTclIDE. The first chapter is a short tutorial that demonstrates the specifics of programming with XOTclIDE. The next chapter describes the use of XOTclIDE. Many functions and characteristics are not described in this document because they are assumed to be quasi standard in similar applications. Therefore component development and object-orientation will be not explained in this document.

This documentation does not contain the programmer guide for programming in Tcl and XOTcl. Suitable documentation can be found on the Internet (see the section called “XOTclIDE WWW Resources”).
