Tcl is an ideal language for scripting, testing, and rapid prototyping. And millions of developers around the world rely on ActiveTcl to build and maintain business- and mission-critical applications. It’s used in aerospace, engineering, CAD and even in Cisco routers and core networking infrastructure.
In fact, Tcl is so popular that people have worked to configure IDEs to work with Tcl; recently we saw this video by Fervor T, who had configured Eclipse as a Tcl IDE.
However, here at ActiveState, our goal is to make your life easy–we want to provide you with tools that just work. That’s why Komodo IDE comes pre-loaded with so many languages including Tcl, Python, PHP, Perl, web (HTML,CSS, JS), and more.
