Eiffel is a pure object-oriented language, developed by Bertrand Meyer in the 90's. It resembles Ada a bit. One thing to note about Eiffel is that it is strongly-typed, has a strict philosophy about what can and can not be done and that it requires a lot from compilers.
In short, it is the "ideal" OO language (ideal, but not the most widely used or known).

... [the tclish package provides] the marriage of two very different principles by means of combining two programming languages into a hybrid program architecture.
There are three classes for the user - tcl interpretor, tk application, and tk window. See ftp://hepunx.rl.ac.uk/pub/eiffel/tclish for details.
What: TclEiffel Where: http://www.eiffel-forum.org/archive/bergmeyer/tcl-eiffel.htm Description: A GUI extension to SmallEiffel 0.80. Based on Tcl/Tk 8.0. Works on Linux and on Windows 95 with CygWin32. Updated: 10/1998 Contact: Unknown (Joachim Bergmeyer) What: tclMIDI Where: ftp://ftp.boogie.com/pub/midi/ ftp://ftp.procplace.com/pub/tcl/sorted/apps/tclmidi/4.1/ http://madonna.me.berkeley.edu/%7Egreg/tclmidi/ ftp://xor.com/pub/midi/tclmidi-3.1.tar.gz ftp://ftp.sterling.com/usenet/comp.sources.misc/packages/tclm/ Description: Tclm is Tcl extended with dynamically loadable standard MIDI file manipulation commands. It is designed for creating and editing standard MIDI files. With the proper device interface it can also be used to play and record MIDI files. This runs on Unix and Windows. It comes with a device driver to interface with a few types of MIDI cards (MPU401, MQX32, Gravis UltraSound and SoundBlaster) and also supports using your serial port as a MIDI interface. The new maintainer of this code has rewritten the original Tclmidi in Eiffel. It requires Tcl 8.x and SmallEiffel -0.79, midi-eiffel. The latest version of tclmidi is v4.1 and the latest version of midi-eiffel is v1.1 Updated: 09/1999 Contact: mailto:[email protected] (Mike Durian) What: Tk for SmallEiffel Where: http://home.pages.de/%7Ejbergmeyer/ Description: Small extension for SmallEiffel which provides a GUI by connecting to a Tcl/Tk interpreter via a socket class.

It supports a class model. Updated: 09/1998 Contact: mailto:[email protected] What: eiftcl Where: ftp://ftp.procplace.com/pub/tcl/sorted/packages-7.6/devel/eiftcl.tar.gz Description: Provide basic facilities for combining the programming languages Eiffel and Tcl into a hybrid program architecture. Updated: 10/1998 Contact: mailto:[email protected] (Stephan Herrmann) What: Gweld-TclTk Where: http://www.eiffel-forum.org/archive/tcltk/ Description: An Eiffel widget library, using Tcl as Eiffel classes.
