I work in a software company mainly developing products for the automotive industry.

Years ago I decided to use Tcl/Tk as scripting language for our products because it

  • is stable
  • is actively maintained
  • is available on Windows, most Unix and VMS
  • it's simple and powerful
  • it combines GUI and scripting

I never regret this decision, although in the meantime Python, Java, ... entered the scene. Still, I like Tcl/Tk most.

2002 I started a project developing a web based information system. I used mod_dtcl for that (of course). Because of increasing load, we decided to switch to FastCGI with Tcl Interface. Running several servers in parallel without initializing each page improved performance a lot. And running different servers (different processes) seems to be easier than having Tcl multithreaded as Apache module. Connection to an Oracle database is done by Oratcl.
