The author of the Tcl
(pronounced "tickle") language. Ousterhout (pronounced Oh'-stir-howt) got tired of rewriting scripting languages for every new hardware design project he started at Berkeley
. He came up with an extensible, and very simple, language he called Tool Command Language (Tcl). With the addition of the Tk
toolkit, extensible cross platform graphics suddenly became very easy.
He now works for Ajuba
corporation (formerly Scriptics
), which is dedicated to commercializing Tcl/Tk
