Example text

The elements of all of the lists are then returned in a new list. Compare the output from concat (above) and list (below). tclsh> list a b "Hello world" a b {Hello world} Here is another example of concat. Notice that whitespace inside elements is preserved. tclsh> concat a {b {c d}} a b {c d} In practice, concat is rarely used. However, it is helpful to understand concat because several commands exhibit concat-like behavior. For example, the expr command concatenates its arguments together before evaluating them—much in the style of concat.

This is precisely how I have written all of the other multi-line examples so far. Fortunately, this style looks a lot like another common style—the C language. Even if you are not used to C, it will be helpful if you adopt the C formatting style—just leave an open brace at the end of the current line and you can omit the backslashes. Consider the following three if commands: if {$count < 0} { puts "count is less than zero" } if {$count < 0} \ { puts "count is less than zero" } if {$count < 0} { puts "count is less than zero" } The first two examples are correct.

Assuming the existence of commands get_a_line and more_lines_in_file, your code might look something like this: while {[more_lines_in_file]} { set list "$list [get_a_line]" } The body builds up the list. Each time through the loop, a new line is appended to the end of the list. This is such a common operation that Tcl provides a command to do this more efficiently. The lappend command takes a variable name as its first argument and appends the remaining arguments. The example above could be rewritten: while {[more_lines_in_file]} { lappend list [get_a_line] } Notice that the first argument is not passed by value.
