Arjen Markus (12 june 2008) I have access to several online literature databases (yes, lucky me :)), one of them is ScienceDirect by Elsevier (I have no shares in that company, I just want to document where I got the information from). A search for articles mentioning "Tcl" in one way or another brings up a lot of titles. I have selected those that use "Tcl" in the sense that we like: Tool Command Language - you'd be surprised how many meanings these three letters have - total cooking loss, two component limit, T cell lines and transverse carpal ligament are but a few!
I did not go through the whole list, just the first 200 or so. Not all of them describe the use of Tcl in their work (some merely mention it). I selected only one by Clif Flynt and added two from beyond the first 200 that had familiar names. Here is the list:

The last cases in the large computational study mentioned was done with a massively parallelized C program, but about half of the cases were first solved using a Tcl program, and even in the end it was the Tcl program that constructed input data for the C program.
