Apache Today: Apache Software Foundation Launches Apache Tcl Project

Feb 12, 2001, 22:16 (3 Talkback[s])

"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."
