Paul Raines is a physicist and scientific programmer at the Stanford
Linear Accelerator Center at Stanford University where he is part of a
large collaboration studying CP violation (why charge and
parity are not conserved in some particle decays). He is a huge
advocate of scripting languages and has been using Tcl on various
projects since 1992. He is also the coauthor of O'Reilly Media, Inc.'s
Tcl/Tk in a Nutshell. When he can get away from the lab, Paul
enjoys hiking, bridge, and soccer.
