Larry McVoy

Big cheese at COMPANY: Bitmover, where he keeps his home page: [2 ]. He has a LinuxWorld profile at: [1 ].

Bitkeeper, a source control system by Bitmover, uses Tcl/Tk extensively, primarily for GUI functions. Mr. McVoy has donated financial support to the Tile project, in the hope that Tile will help improve the appearance of Tk.

He has expressed both admiration and frustration regarding Tcl. In late 2006, he helped start The L Programming Language, in an attempt to wrap a more familiar, C-like syntax around core Tcl functionality.
