Client-side Scripting : Tcl / Tk

The Tool Command Language (Tcl) and GUI Toolkit (Tk) extensively available on a wide range of platforms for 6 years is now being adapted by Sun Microsystems for use in Web Browsers.
Currently available as a Plug-in for the Netscape (and hence MS Internet Explorer) browsers.
