Ideal Programming Language

When selecting a programming language, it‘s important to go for the one which is most apt for the job on hand. Although there may be several factors involved, the most important one among them should be - how well does the programming language caters to the unique needs of the project. Although Tcl Tk cannot be termed as the perfect tool for all projects out there, they work pretty well for a large majority of them.

The past few decades have seen a big surge in the popularity and availability of good quality dynamic programming languages, especially when it comes to the open source world. Although we’re talking about the Tcl programming language here, other dynamic programming languages like PHP, Ruby, Python and Perl are excellent too. Each one of them has its own unique style, features and advantages. All of them have an equal number of differences as well as similarities, and the features available in one dynamic language can be effectively migrated onto others, for instance, Tk is by far the default graphical user interface (GUI) for majority of open source dynamic programming languages of today.

It is the highlights, benefits and features of Tcl that make it a particularly strong dynamic language.
Some of those strengths are:
– An inbuilt event driven programming model that is apt for GUIs, networks etc.
– Exceptional internationalization support
– A rich and effective deployment model, featuring thorough support for commercial applications’ protection.
– Tk is exclusively designed for Tcl and works well with other dynamic languages too. The API is well-documented, updated and natural.
