When I installed Python, I ended up with a subfolder called TCL. There is precious little information on all the zillion .tcl files there. The only readme file in the tk demo subfolder talks about wish and installing wish, again no clue, at least for me!
Can one of the experts please shed some light on tkinter, wish and those many .tcl files. Does tkinter stand for tk interpreter?

TKinter is the standard GUI toolkit that comes with Python.

TCL is another computer language, whose major contribution to computing is the Tk graphics library.
