Clig uses a simple description file to create C-code to interprete the typical *NIX command line as well as an up-to-date usage-message and a manual page skeleton. It supports Flag, String, Int, Long, Float and Double types, with ranges, defaults, and more. The generated C-Code is ANSI but has been reported to work with C++. It is self contained code which does not depend on any library other than libc. Included is a TCL-only TCL-package to instrument your TCL scripts the same way as your C-programs.
Ficl (Forth inspired command language) is an ANS Forth interpreter written in C. Unlike traditional Forths, this interpreter is designed to be embedded into other systems as a command/macro/development prototype language. Ficl provides object extensions that can be used to wrap methods and structures of the host system without altering them.
Tcl provides a portable scripting environment for Unix, Windows, and Macintosh that supports string processing and pattern matching, native file system access, shell-like control over other programs, TCP/IP networking, timers, and event-driven I/O. Tcl has traditional programming constructs like variables, loops, procedures, namespaces, error handling, script packages, and dynamic loading of DLLs. Tk provides portable GUIs on UNIX, Windows, and Macintosh. A powerful widget set and the concise scripting interface to Tk make it a breeze to develop sophisticated user interfaces.
Tixapps is a suite of development applications that run with Tcl/Tk or Python, using the Tix widget set. Applications currently included in Tixapps are tixinspect (an inspector for Tix/Tk applications), tixdebug (a debugger to work with tixinspect), and tixinfo (an info browser for GNU documentation).
The Units Conversion Library provides a facility for converting from a variety of scientific and engineering shorthand notations into floating point numbers. This allows application developers to easily convert value strings like "9.2 meters/second" and "20 miles/hour" into uniformly scaled floating point numbers. The library is implemented in both Tcl and C, and supporting other scripting languages should be straightforward.
Alana is a highly responsive Turing Machine simulator with many examples, like (unary and binary) addition, subtraction and multiplication, "copy band content", string parsing examples, and divisibility and primality testing. The documentation contains an introduction to Turing Machines as well as some interesting theoretical information (halting problem, busy beaver, universal Turing Machines) and pointers to further literature.
ACDK is a development framework with a similar target of Microsoft's .NET or Sun's ONE platform, but it uses C++ as a core implementation language. It implements the standard library packages, including acdk::lang, acdk::lang::reflect, acdk::util, acdk::io, acdk::text (including regexpr), acdk::net, acdk::sql, acdk::xml, and more. Flexible allocator/garbage collection, threading, and Unicode are implemented in the core of ACDK. Extensions make C++ objects available for reflection, serialization, aspect-oriented class attributes, and [D]ynamic [M] ethod [I]nvocation. This DMI acts as an universal object oriented call interface to connect C++ with scripting languages (Java, Perl, Tcl, Python, Lisp, Visual Basic, and VBScript) and standard component technologies (CORBA and COM).
eltclsh (editline Tcl shell) is an interactive shell for the Tcl programming language. It provides command line editing, history browsing, and variables and command completion thanks to editline features. The completion engine is programmable in a way similar to tcsh, and comes with built in completion for the entire Tcl language by default. The package also provides elwish, an interactive interpreter for the Tk toolkit. You need the editline library in order to compile eltclsh.
