Response to: What I hate about Tcl

"Truly terrible" is a bit of an overstatement.


It suffers from a commitment to overwhelmingly simple command syntax. All commands are "operator arg arg arg...", so instead of "$a = $b", you end up with the ugly "set a $b".


Simplicity is not always beautiful, but it does make embedding really easy. (in commercial CAD tools, tuxracer, network routers, or wherever)


And Tk rocks!
