Tcl isn't really hard

AMG: Tcl is too simple to understand. Most programmers take it for granted that programming languages are complex, so when they encounter something that's not complex (Tcl), they are at a loss. To cope, they make Tcl be as convoluted as possible (e.g. asking for the BNF), or they conclude that Tcl is not a real programming language ('cuz it's not complex enough to be a programming language).

  • Tcl has a Wiki that is actively maintained by all kinds of weird persons who think programming in Tcl is fun.
  • Tcl/Tk programmers tend to masquerade as nice and helpful people, quite willing to let other people profit from their knowledge and experience.
