AsciiArtWidget creates and handles a widget with bindings appropriate for easy creation of ascii art. Basically it is a text widget filled with spaces and newlines, and character inserts replace a space, and backspace/delete replace characters with spaces so that the right hand side of the image is always in the right spot. Includes a mouse drag painting binding, and block sleection/delete, as well as a data loading and squaring system.
Tcl/SMAPI is a Tcl extension library that makes possible the use of the IBM Speech Manager API (SMAPI) in Tcl scripts. IBM is using Tcl/SMAPI in automating the testing of the speech recognition engine, both off-line and on-line. Using simple Tcl scripts, it is possible to interact with the ViaVoice speech recognition engine in a platform-independent manner. Developers may also use Tcl/SMAPI to quickly prototype graphical, speech aware applications using Tcl/Tk. In addition, using the Tcl language, general purpose speech applications can be developed, including, for example, client/server systems. A simple graphical dictation window is included with Tcl/SMAPI to illustrate the use of Tcl/SMAPI with the Tcl/Tk wish interpreter.
The tclreadline package makes the GNU readline facilities available for interactive Tcl shells. This includes history expansion and file/command completion. Command and subcommand completion is provided for all Tcl/Tk commands. Command completion can be easily added for user-defined commands.
Extended Tcl (TclX) is an extension to Tcl, the Tool Command Language invented by Dr. John Ousterhout. Tcl is a simple and powerful embeddable programming language. Extended Tcl is oriented toward system programming tasks and large application development. TclX provides additional interfaces to the operating system. It also adds many new programming constructs, text manipulation tools, and debugging tools.
IRK is a Tcl IRC client library. IRK is intended for Tcl programmers that want to use the IRC protocol for communication. It can be used to ease the creation of IRC "bots", to serve as the basis for graphical chat clients, and to allow IRKs to find each other without centralized coordination by meeting on a designated IRC server and channel. This last feature makes it ideal for negotiating the initial contact of P2P programs without requiring a central registry or server.
