Tcl and Tk were developed by John
Tcl stands for "tool command language" and is pronounced
"tickle". Tcl is actually two things: a language and a
library. Tcl is a simple textual language, intended primarily for
issuing commands to interactive programs such as text editors,
debuggers, illustrators, and shells; it can also be used as a library
package embedded in application programs.
Tk is an extension to Tcl which provides an interface to the X. Note
that many users will encounter Tk via "wish", a simple
windowing shell which permits the user to write Tcl applications
The latest versions of Tcl/Tk can be obtained
