incr Tcl (the name is a pun on "C++", and often abbreviated to "itcl") is a set of object-oriented extensions for the Tcl programming language. It is widely used among the Tcl community, and is generally regarded as industrial strength[citation needed]. Itcl implementations exist as both a package that may be dynamically loaded by a Tcl application, as well as an independent standalone language with its own interpreter.




Namespace Support

Itcl allows namespaces to be used for organizing commands and variables.


   package require Itcl
   itcl::class Toaster {
       variable crumbs 0
       method toast {nslices} {
           if {$crumbs > 50} {
               error "== FIRE! FIRE! =="
           set crumbs [expr $crumbs+4*$nslices]
       method clean {} {
           set crumbs 0
   itcl::class SmartToaster {
       inherit Toaster
       method toast {nslices} {
           if {$crumbs > 40} {
           return [chain $nslices]
   set toaster [SmartToaster #auto]
   $toaster toast 2

C Code Integration

Itcl (like Tcl) has built-in support for the integration of C code into Itcl classes.

[incr Tcl] from the Ground Up by Chad Smith, published in January 2000.

This is a complete reference manual for [incr Tcl], covering language fundamentals, OO design issues, overloading, code reuse, multiple inheritance, abstract base classes, and performance issues. Despite its breadth, it follows a tutorial, rather than encyclopedic, approach. This book is out of print as of September 2004.
