The Great Computer Language Shootout: http://www.bagley.org/~doug/shootout/A comparison of the performance of 30 languages spread over 25 benchmark tests. The performance alone is interesting, but not the most valuable aspect of this site. Being able to see the same piece of code implemented in different languages is a great way to get an idea for the syntax and style of a language. No matter how fast or expressive it is, you have to like programming in it for it to be a worthwhile choice.CL mentions http://www.amag.com/documents/s=8955/sam0310web1/ in connection to information about Expect.LV Dec 15, 2005, Over in comp.lang.tcl, there has been discussion about starting an online magazine for Tcl at http://www.tcltalk.com/ .
