In search for portable, configurable evironment to build a system for data collection, reduction and visualization, we have decided to use Tcl as the platform, because of its strengths as an excellent graphical user interface building system. We began constructing building blocks, in the form of loadable Tcl extensions, for many of these data-related functions. This paper presents such extensions to manipulate binary data arrays, including their on-screen display. See also accopanying paper on Tcl extensions for experiment control and data collection, and for interfacing to NeXus disk files.
