Why tcl/tk?

After minutes spent in an exhaustive search, tcl/tk was chosen as the initial platform for sewer development. The reasons are simple:

  • It is available and fairly well supported on most platforms.
  • It is easy to read from STDIN and write to STDOUT
  • The graphics are very easy compared to other languages like Java.
  • It about time I learned it

But, since the idea is to provide a framework rather than a specific implementation, other languages could and most certainly will be used as the project progresses.
