I love to play around with languages as a hobby, and Tcl is no exception there. Periodically I go an a Tcl/Tk binge, and they always seem to last longer than the other binges. I like Perl/Tk and Tkinter as well.

The only problem I have with Tk is its printer support. I wish it had better (or maybe there's some secret about printing under Tk that I haven't found yet, other than the Canvas/Postscript thingy.) I alwsys kinda liked how Visual Basic could see the printer page as an object and then just print it.

Other thing I love about this is that you can show anybody how to put widgets on their screen and play with them, interactively. Really cool!

I agree - this toolset will be around a lot longer than I will, I think.
