Thinking in Strings
The Tcl motto "Everything is a String" makes programming simple. Created by John Ousterhout at the University of Berkley Tcl is one of the more important members in the family of scripting languages (like Perl, Python and Ruby). Tcl-Applications are easy and fast to write, easy to delivery to almost any current platform. The graphical Toolkit Tk provides a great widget set which is easy to extend. If you think that Tcl/Tk is somewhat old fashioned, remember that if you install Perl, Ruby, Python or even the R-statistical programming language you almost always install as well the Tk-Toolkit.
The best place to start learning Tcl is the online available book from Brent Welch http://www.beedub.com
