Of course they are only my opinion and, if you think that they are unhelpful, I can change them. The Java statement followed a reading of "Beyond Java" , Bruce A. Tate, O'Reilly (2005). The Perl statement is based on my experience. I have recently tried some examples published in a magazine and was surprised to find that the Perl library was not as reliable as one might expect. Tk has some cleaver widgets but Tcl is very primitive. I used it when it first came out but now think that there are better alternatives. It is essentially a functional programming language but with a curious trapdoor method of passing data out of a function.

editorializing
do the items on the 'Options .. Dependencies' dialog really need this level of editorializing?

Java: "Because of its clean, object-oriented design is was also adopted by academic institutions. Subsequent developments and the creation of ever more complex frameworks have made it a difficult language to use. It is unsuited to the agile style of programming made possible by today's more powerful computers and promoted by dynamic languages such as Python and Ruby."

Perl: "The language is rather cryptic and difficult to undestand and the library of packages is not entirely bug free."

Tcl/Tk: " The Tcl language itself is extremely primitive and the Tk widgets look out of place on a modern desktop. "

wxWidgets: " It is, however, not a clone of MFC and is significantly better designed. On Linux it fits in well with the GNOME desktop as it is based on GTK+ 2. "
