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.
