Tcl is an abbrevation for "Tool Command Language" and is pronounced
"tickle". Tcl is a very fast, neat, interpreted, embedded language

Tk is an extension to Tcl which provides the programmer an extension
to a window system. The combination of Tcl and Tk is very powerful and
is often used through "wish", a windowing shell. There are wish'es
available for many major window systems. Please note that it's also
possible to impliment Tcl/Tk using their respective C libraries.

If you want more information, I'd recommend you to get the drafts on
Ousterhouts book on Tcl/tk from Source
code and other papers/packages are also available in this dir. Much
information and Tcl/Tk related packages are also available on

Hope this helps.
