And, while you are checking out Tcl, definitely check out TclHttpd, an all Tcl Http server that is very configurable amd scriptable. It can be wrapped in the tclkit "scripted document" for very easy deployment on one or numerous machines. The scripted document is cross-platform and includes a non-sql database, whose data is stored in a compressed and cross-platform format. Tcl is very similar to REBOL in a Lispish way. It tends to encourage a little more assignment and flows a little less naturally (sub-evaluations need to be explicitly nested in brackets). In short, tcl isn't as expressive as REBOL, but it is mostly cross-platform, open-source and free with broad range of available libraries. is a starting point, but by Philip Greenspun (of MIT and fame), et al, has the best briefest introduction to Tcl that I've seen. --Scott Jones
