In this publication is presented a method for design of an operating station based on a TCL / TK – portable open source programmed platform, implemented for different operating systems (Windows, Unix, Linux, Solaris, Android).
In the article three possible approaches to building an operator station are considered:
(1) Classical approach which is realized by using of “event processing”, “call back” and “graphical tools” features of TCL/TK;
(2) The "Multi- interpreters" realisation using a number of interpreters of TCL;
(3) “Multi- threads" mode, including cooperative working of one or more program threads.
The described approaches are illustrated by presented implementation of an operating station to wireless control system for a group of intelligent instruments which are designed for laparoscopic surgery.
