The Aida project is two-fold: it defines a simple common markup language designed to describe structured text, and it implements a compiler that translates the Aida syntax into various target formats (HTML, LaTeX, Trac, Mediawiki, Text, Markdown, and others). The system is fast, flexible, and extensible. The core command, aida, is a strict parser (written using Bison and Flex), which analyzes files written in the Aida Markup Language and invokes callbacks in order to convert them to the target format. It embeds a Tcl language interpreter and the callbacks are written in Tcl. This makes it very easy to extend the library and to define new target formats. Furthermore, the Aida files are highly parameterizable via a header and the entire system is configurable at the admin and at the user level. It is also possible to evaluate Tcl code within an Aida file and thus create dynamic contents.
Tiny Tcl 6.8 is a rommable, minimal Tcl implementation for embedded applications. Derived from the venerable Tcl 6.7 release, Tiny Tcl 6.8 has a solid Tcl feature set, excluding newer capabilities of Tcl 7 and 8 such as the bytecode compiler, namespaces, sockets, and async event handling, among others. Excluding C library functions, Tiny Tcl compiles down to less than 60 Kbytes on most machines, far smaller than any Tcl 7 or Tcl 8 derivatives.
TclDTrace is a binding of libdtrace to the Tcl programming language. DTrace is a system profiling suite created by Sun Microsystems. It allows the user to profile a program without modifying its text, or even without the need to distract it if it is running. It consists of a set of library hooks called "providers", a set of tools, a C API (libdtrace), and its own specially crafted scripting language called D. A Tcl binding to libdtrace will allow users to run D scripts and process their results directly from Tcl.
pgintcl is a pure Tcl interface to the PostgreSQL database system. It provides an alternative to pgtcl and pgtcl-ng but does not require a compiled Tcl extension (libpgtcl) or PostgreSQL client library (libpq). This allows developers to create Tcl utilities and applications that are platform neutral. Trade-offs are slower performance and PostgreSQL protocol version dependency.
Poet (Prototype Object Extension for Tcl) is an OOP extension for Tcl/Tk featuring prototype-based inheritance, constraints, and persistence. It includes Poetics (Poet Integrated Construction Set), a set of tools for end-user inspection and modification of a running Poet application. The current Poetics tools are an object browser and a syntax-highlighting code editor. Poet is available wrapped as a starkit that can be used to load Poet into Tcl or standalone to demo and install Poet.
