Another indicator of why they should be using tcl.
I develop speech rec\tts applications, commercially. (You want to develop domain specific bots TODAY, we have had the tools to do so for the past 8 years.) Went to AVIOS looking hoping for a quick meeting with one of Microsofts Speech\Language product managers in order to demo the product and determine if I had may head screwed on straight with regard to the best use of available technologies.
He said ten minutes at most, had two other presentations to make. Forty-five minutes later, after interacting with the bot\simulator, he stepped back and said "I know what language you used - Tcl".
Blew me away. "How could you possibly know?
His response "Cause it would be nearly impossible to do this with any language that Microsoft makes available"
So, again, you might ask those who question your judgment, "Why are you not using Tcl?".
Most likely, the answer will be "Never heard or even considered it."
Those are "programmers" with a small "p".
