Question Syntax error in tcl/tk code

Hi All,
I have written a code in tcl which is supposed to open an GUI in which numbers will be entered & after performing selected operation it wil show a result.

#package require Tk
#global opr 
proc DoOperation {} {
global opr
set fstno [ .entno1 get]
set scdno [ .entno2 get]
set result [expr {$fstno  $opr  $scdno}] 
.entres insert 0 $result
proc AddOpr {} {
set opr +
proc SubOpr {} {
set opr -
proc MulOpr {} {
set opr *
proc DivOpr {} {
set opr /
###Creation on widgets
wm title . "Wants to create Calculator"
frame .frm
label .labno1 -text "Enter First Number Here: "
label .labno2 -text "Enter Second number Here: "
label .labres -text "Result is : "
entry .entno1
entry .entno2
entry .entres
button .butadd -text "+" -width 4 -command "AddOpr"
button .butneg -text "-" -width 4 -command "SubOpr"
button .butmul -text "*" -width 4 -command "MulOpr"
button .butdiv -text "/" -width 4 -command "DivOpr"
button .butcalc -text "CALCULATE" -command "DoOperation" 
button .butext -text "EXIT" -command {exit}
###setting widgets 
#grid .but1 
grid .labno1 -in .frm -row 1 -column 1 -sticky w 
grid .labno2 -in .frm -row 2 -column 1 -sticky w
grid .labres -in .frm -row 3 -column 1 -sticky w
grid .entno1 -in .frm -row 1 -column 2 -sticky e
grid .entno2 -in .frm -row 2 -column 2 -sticky e
grid .entres -in .frm -row 3 -column 2 -sticky e
grid .butadd -in .frm -row 4 -column 1 -padx "0 65" -pady "5 5" 
grid .butneg -in .frm -row 4 -column 1 -padx "65 0" -pady "5 5" ;# -columnspan 2
grid .butmul -in .frm -row 4 -column 2 -padx "0 65" -pady "5 5";# -columnspan 2
grid .butdiv -in .frm -row 4 -column 2 -padx "65 0" -pady  "5 5"
grid .butcalc -in .frm -row 5 -column 1 -columnspan 1 -pady  "5 5"
grid .butext -in .frm -row 5 -column 2 -columnspan 2 -pady  "5 5"
pack .frm

Error I am getting is-
syntax error in expression "$fstno  $opr  $scdno": extra tokens at end of expression
syntax error in expression "$fstno  $opr  $scdno": extra tokens at end of expression
    while executing
"expr {$fstno  $opr  $scdno}"
    (procedure "DoOperation" line 5)

This is the first program I have created after completing my basic training of TCL/Tk so pls forgive me for silly mistakes.

Help appreciated in resolving this error.

hmm - seems to dislike you setting the operator opr as +-*/ etc , then calculating.

you could maybe just rewrite so hitting the opr button does the insert e.g. :
proc SubOpr {} {
set result [expr { [ .entno1 get]  -   [ .entno2 get]}]
.entres insert 0 $result

And - you could do with a clear operation, or any new reults will be appended to the current string in the result..

Thanks for the reply.
My actual requirement is selection of math. operator dynamically.
With the option u have given it would not satisfy , sorry.

Please help me to resolve this issue.
