 Tcl the misunderstood

I have used expect, so I suppose that should count as writing tcl code. If you have never used expect, then you are missing out on some great things.

"Tcl is not without faults, but most of its limitations are not hard coded in the language design, they are just the result of the fact that Tcl lost its "father" (John Ousterhout) a number of years ago, and together with him any kind of single-minded strong leadership that was able to take strong decisions. With the right changes it is possible to overcome most of the limitations of Tcl, and at the same time preserve the power of the language. "
