Original OSNews Interviews The Tcl programming language has been immensely successful in its almost 15 years of existence. Tcl, stands for 'Tool Command Language' and is pronounced 'tickle' by those in the know. It's probably most famous for the Tk graphical toolkit, which has for years set the standard for rapid, scriptable, cross-platform GUI development, but the language is used throughout a staggering variety of applications, from the open source web server that runs AOL's web site, to code for network testing, to code to run oil rigs.

tk looks good on windows and bad on x11

i wish tk would visually better integrate with gnome or kde. i think tk widgets on unix looks horrible and it's quite okay on windows (again: no standards for look and feel on most unix).
