It has a test suite, and manpages for every command and C function
(well, perhaps not every externally visible function, but pretty much
every one that you might want to call).  And (once upon a time), it
was unusually portable, and had Tk, which made it possible to write
functional (if not particularly pretty) GUIs that worked on Unix and

It also (now) has reasonable performance, and (as far as I know,

comprehensive documentation and the test suite.

It lacks things like closures (its syntax is just a bit too "simple",
