Tcl's philosphy is much like C, in that it provides basic constructs
and the rest are built with libaries. It is not an "everything
including the kitchen sink" language like some. There are many widget
libraries and a good starting point might be the book "Tcl/Tk
Toolkit." It's rather old now, but still relevent. You might also try
http://titania.crd.ge.com/tcl/homepage.html as a start.
