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.
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.
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.
The Nebula Device is a free multiplatform game engine currently running under Linux and Windows. It uses OpenGL and/or Direct3D for rendering and Tcl/Tk for scripting. Living C++ objects can be browsed and manipulated at runtime from the builtin console, or remotedly from a minimal terminal based console app. A powerful channel animation system allows any floating point attribute to be animated, and specialized animator classes allow things like realtime bone animation with weighted vertex skin.
TiK is a pure TCL/Tk implementation of AOL Instant Messenger (AIM). It has most of the features the native Win32 and Mac clients have, plus some extras. It includes a graphical buddy list display, full font support, graphical emoticons, away messages, buddy pounce, buddy ticker, IM/Chat capturing, message broadcasting, a GUI preferences system, and much more. TiK's expandable nature allows the addition of new features through packages.
