Maths Games Language Comparison It's important when choosing a programming language to choose the right language for the job. While there are many factors involved, one of the most important is certainly the fit of the tool to the project at hand. Tcl and Tk aren't the perfect tool for everything, but they do work well for a surprisingly large number of projects. Here are some things to consider when trying to decide if Tcl and Tk might be a good fit as one of the languages for your next project. Dynamic Languages vs. System Programming Languages Tcl is a dynamic programming language, along with other languages like Perl, Python, Ruby, etc. Dynamic languages are complementary to system programming languages, and designed to solve different problems. As a result, dynamic languages tend to be "higher level". Dynamic languages aren't right for everything though, and many projects in fact combine both dynamic and system programming languages, using each where appropriate. Choosing a Dynamic Language So then, why Tcl?

Rader's NUMBERNUT.COM Information Visualization Manifesto Posted: August 30th, 2009 | Author: Manuel Lima | Filed under: Uncategorized | – “The purpose of visualization is insight, not pictures” Ben Shneiderman (1999) – Over the past few months I’ve been talking with many people passionate about Information Visualization who share a sense of saturation over a growing number of frivolous projects. The criticism is slightly different from person to person, but it usually goes along these lines: “It’s just visualization for the sake of visualization”, “It’s just eye-candy”, “They all look the same”. When Martin Wattenberg and Fernanda Viégas wrote about Vernacular Visualization, in their excellent article on the July-August 2008 edition of interactions magazine, they observed how the last couple of years have witnessed the tipping point of a field that used to be locked away in its academic vault, far from the public eye. Even though a clear divide is necessary, it doesn’t mean that Information Visualization and Information Art cannot coexist.

Amazing Mathematical Object Factory AMOF, the Amazing Mathematical Object Factory, shown on the left, produces lists of mathematical objects in response to customer orders. Today you are a customer and you must tell AMOF what you want produced. This factory is totally non-polluting and the objects produced are absolutely free! (There is a vicious rumour however, that the workers are underpaid and overworked.) Click on a icon with an Indigo background, such as , to learn about that object, or on an icon with a Green background, such as to generate the object. , which appears both at the top and at the bottom of all succeeding pages. appears on every page as well; clicking on it will take you back to the SchoolNet home page. Combinatorial objects are everywhere! But what is a combinatorial object? There are many, many types of combinatorial objects and we work with just a few of them in AMOF.
