Purpose: links to pages that compare, connect, or sometimes partially reimplement other programming languages to(in) Tcl. For Tcl application to human, "natural" languages, check the Lish family - and for comparing code snippets with other languages, Tcl in comparison. Or Tcl and other human languages.

- Logo: Turtle graphics the LOGO way - Turtleshell
- Lua: http://www.inf.puc-rio.br/%7Eroberto/lua.html has a Tk binding. There is also Lux [L7 ], which makes Tcl callable from Lua. This [L8 ] is the Lua equivalent of this page on the Lua Wiki [L9 ].
- ML: sml_tk [L10 ] is a Standard ML package providing an abstract interface to Tcl/Tk
- Modula-3: http://m3.polymtl.ca/m3/pkgf/contrib/m3tcl/.ghindex.html . See also Preprocessing and Radical Language Modification.

- Python: Playing Python, tclpython, Tkinter, and Elmer - What about http://www.veritas.com/%7Ebrianw/rivet/ - is there continuing support for this Tk without Tcl project? Also ITCLPYTHON [L12 ]. The Typcl extension lets you use Tcl from Python [L13 ], it is part of CritLib [L14 ]. This [L15 ] and this [L16 ] are the Python equivalents of this page.

- Sather: http://packages.debian.org/unstable/devel/sather-browser.html [comes with a Tk browser]
- Scheme: STk seems to be pretty popular - it is a Tk binding for Scheme. Anyone want to talk about it? (escargo 6 Nov 2006 - I did find this link, but it's passing old: http://kaolin.essi.fr/STk/ Some comments about it and its successor are here: http://saxo.essi.fr/~gallesio/research.html ) Or maybe Biglook, a Bigloo Tk distribution? There was some talk about a EuLisp integration of Tcl as well a few years ago. Also there was the REPL Scheme widget library which had Tcl/Tk connections. http://www.colorstudy.com/ianb/projects/tcl-scheme&e=925 (404! http://www.colorstudy.com/software/tcl-scheme/ has software that allegedly "converts the Tcl programming language into Guile Scheme")

LV Hey, if you know of other computer programming languages which have some Tcl/Tk relationship, add them above. Also, if you know of people who have written other languages, based on Tcl, add them as well.
CL also occasionally comments on this topic in [L19 ].
http://www.wikipedia.org/wiki/Programming_language_timeline is an interesting Wiki page, a part of an internet encyclopedia. The page provides a time line of applications and programming langauges created from 1840 through 2001.
Then there is the Computer Programming Language Dictionary [L20 ] - check out what it says about Tcl.
http://www.acooke.org/andrew/writing/lang.html is a discussion of programming languages, and mentions Tcl as the grand daddy of scripting languages.
Robert Abitbol, Tuesday 1st March 2005. There is this page I started on C2 a few months ago. It is called: http://c2.com/cgi/wiki?CandCplusPlusComparedToOtherLanguages .
Anyone interested in writing a comparison between C/C++ and TCL there?
