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.
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.
