	Tcl/Tk has got to be the ickiest language I've ever had the
displeasure of writing a program in this side of BASIC.  It combines the
obtuseness of lisp with the execution speed of Javascript.

	Might I humbly suggest Python.  :-) Python is much cleaner than
Tcl/Tk.  You can even use Tcl/Tk from Python without having to write any
Tcl code.  Or, you could use PyGTK or PyGNOME and have a nicer looking
interface.  :-) It's also nearly as fast to develop in as Tcl/TK.  It
has a command line interpreter and a very regular set of rules.

Have fun (if at all possible),
