- Developer Tools
Millions of developers trust Tcl for rapid prototyping, scripted applications, GUIs, testing and more. It runs in numerous Cisco routers and in various network management tools. Because Tcl is an open source programming language, it can help cut up-front project costs.
But Tcl alone may not help you meet your business goals.
Like most open source projects, Tcl isn't quality-assured or commercially supported. So it may not be safe for essential business applications. Don't let Tcl fail your internal systems and cost your business in lost revenue.
Cisco, Ixia, and Agilent are just a few of the companies that trust ActiveState for development, management and distribution solutions for fail-safe Tcl.
