A program should be light and agile, its subroutines connected like a string of pearls. The spirit and intent of the program should be retained throughout. There should be neither too little or too much, neither needless loops nor useless variables, neither lack of structure nor overwhelming rigidity." - The Tao of Programming, 4.1 - Geoffrey James

    perlscript is NOT mainstream, neither is VBscript (VB might be), don't know about TCL
      Sorry, I wasn't clear: I was answering the assertion "JS got a lot more attention because you simply can't use any other language to script sites.", which is clearly incorrect.

        You may write scripts in those language, but they won't work for lack of support. As such, you can't use them in web sites. Sure, you could in closed systems, but that's not really the web.

    sorry, but making sites only for IE won't do it anymore.

    Never heard of using TCL before, but as far as I searched it's only usable through a plugin, no good either.
      Why would a plug-in disqualify it? Flash needs a plug-in and it is considered mainstream.

      I do agree TCL is not mainstream, but that was not the point: I only wanted to show that there are other scripts than JavaScript one can use in a webpage.
