P.S. I thought about creating an 'Oratcl certified professional' :)
P.S. Reverse the "cast" and "com" in my email address to reach me.
There will be no certification for you until you remember to
always type 'Tcl' instead of 'TCL' (see subject). ;)
Also, question 1 of the certification:
'Tcl' is pronounced:
All those answering (a) will make John unhappy.

I've allways used option _a_ .
Do I now have to do _TeKaHiri_ ?
PS: as written communication ( eMail, UseNet ) does not carry audio
this has no impact and in the audio exchanges i had with (co)germans
it was allways T-C-L ( Huns and Teutons can not be tickled ;-? )
I tossed that one up because I know quite a few people who
still persist with T-C-L, as that's how they've always
referred to it. However, Ousterhout's original 1990 USENIX
paper on Tcl did actually specify the pronunciation as the
word Tickle, rather than T-C-L.
John was always willing to allow T-C-L in shops where "Tickle"
sounded silly, or worse, obscene. Particularly after the Toronto
conference, where he had a moment of embarrassment explaining
to a Canadian customs official that he was in Canada to attend
a "tickle convention."
"Tai4 ku4" (\u592a\u9177) is an acceptable Mandarin Chinese

It was, of course, referred to as TclSECS, and pronounced the appropriate
way, to the amusement of all, including the customer.
Thank you, this thread helped me understand why we have tcltest and not
the converse ;)
Oh please don't!
