Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"The Apache Software Foundation today announced the launch of
the Apache Tcl project, with the goal of promoting the integration
of the Apache web server with the Tcl scripting language."
"Tcl (tool command language, pronounced "tickle") is an
open-source, cross-platform scripting language Tcl has a strong
history of use for the web, with products such as AOLserver, and
the widely used StoryServer. Combined with Apache, the world's most
popular web server, Tcl will make an excellent companion for
back-end scripting tasks."
"Tcl is a great language for the web - it's small, light, easy
to learn, and has been used, developed and tested for a number of
years" said David Welton, vice president of Apache Tcl and author
of mod_dtcl. "It also has a large user base, and is a very active
open source project in its own right."
