I am working on a project which requires extensive
graphics programming. Plots, barcharts, graphs, trees and other graphical
displays have to be developed. 3-D graphics *may* be neccessary.
Animation will be required.

I have to decide between Tcl or Python. I used Tcl and
found it satisfactory but I'd like to know more about Python
[i.e whether it is better for this task or not] but unfortunately I dont
have the time to check python on my own.

I'd be grateful for any suggestions/opinions you can send me.
Please mail them to

Thank you very much,
