"ActiveState, the leader in open source programming languages, announced today the addition of Tcl to the languages they support. In addition to providing supported versions of Tcl, core Tcl consulting and Tcl development tools, ActiveState will also soon be hosting the primary Tcl community website."

"Tcl (Tool Command Language, pronounced "tickle") is a high level programming language that is cross-platform, open source, easy to use, embeddable and extensible. As a scripting language it excels at automating routine chores and extending applications. Tcl is also well suited for creating simple, yet powerful, graphical user interfaces (GUIs) with the Tk toolkit."

"Tcl has approximately 500,000 users. Tcl's flexibility, ease of use, and power has made it popular amongst numerous blue chip companies such as: AOL, Cisco, Newbridge Networks, and Healtheon."
