GMV, http://www.gmv.com , is a spanish company providing high-tech solutions for the aerospace and defense markets. GMV has been using Tcl extensively from 1994, where it was identified as the perfect solution for the development of a data entry and manipulation system in the context of the ORATOS program [1 ], a spacecraft flight dynamics support system for the European Space Agency. The key issues were integration with legacy programs (FORTRAN and C) and the ability to build user interfaces on-the-fly, areas where Tcl and Tk shine.
From then on, Tcl/Tk has become one of the cornerstones which has allowed us to keep the competitive edge. GMV has used Tcl/Tk in many ways, including:
More recently Tcl/Tk has been selected as the reference technology for the company products. In this context we are in the initial stages of a very ambitious program. Tclers welcome!
