NEM A good introduction to Intelligent Agents and multi-agent systems, including a favourable mention of Tcl and Agent Tcl as a good way of developing mobile agents (i.e., that can be sent across the internet).
"In summary, Tcl and Tk provide a rich environment for building language-based applications, particularly GUI-based ones. But they are not/were not intended as agent programming environments. The core primitives may be used for building agent programming environments - the source code is free, stable, well designed, and easily modified. The Agent Tcl framework is one attempt to do this."
