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.
Jim is a small footprint implementation of the Tcl programming language. It implements a large subset of Tcl and adds new features like references with garbage collection, closures, a built-in object oriented programming system, functional programming commands, and first class arrays. The interpreter's executable file is only 70 KB in size, and can be reduced by further excluding some commands. It is appropriate for inclusion inside existing programs, for scripting without dependencies, and for embedded systems.
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.
Thyrd is an experimental, reflective, visual programming language and environment. In Thyrd, both data and code are stored in cells situated in nested two-dimensional grids. All operations the user can perform to edit the structure are implemented as operators in the Thyrd language, thus a Thyrd program can inspect and modify itself or other programs in the same space. Thyrd belongs to the Forth family of languages. It most resembles Joy in that it uses quotation and combinators to implement iteration and recursion.
The QConsole class is a custom widget that implements a basic console, written in C++ and relying on Qt. It implements several features and is intended to be inherited from in order to have a "real" console for a specific scripting language, shell, etc. Example implementations for TCL and Python are included.
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.
