TCL(Tool Command Language) Scripting

Tcl dot net (Tcl.net, yes microsoft net framework) ? realistic?


I am not a microsoft fan, but I think .net is a good thing.

To make a nice gui with winforms and vb.net is more easy for me then
using tk. Or with .net it`s easy to use win api functions.

What about Tcl.net? The tcl syntax is more easy then C# / vb. Tcl.net
with Microsoft Visual Studio and full oop by standard would be the most
awesome thing I can imagine as programing language.

Is there a statement about this idea from the tcl developers?

What about the tcl core team? Is it still interested, active and alive
or out of breath?

This is not in the scope of the core team. This would be a side
project that
some adventurous person would need to champion. There is no reason why
it could
not work. Python has done it and I believe there is a Ruby version as
well.

I find Win API functions easy to use through Tcl; I can just pretend
that I'm on UNIX and have things work. :-)

While I suspect that most of the Tcl Maintainers (as the devs are
called) are a bit short of effort to take the lead on such a task, this
should not be taken as discouragement. It should be not that difficult
to implement Tcl on .net; Tcl's already been implemented on Java for
years (as Jacl), and that should provide a good model for how to carry
out the integration.

Of course, if you're wanting to compile Tcl procedures down directly to
the CLR, that'll be a lot harder. But that's really not the first stage
to work on if you're doing it; getting a basic implementation of the
interpreter and a reasonable standard library (i.e. the Tcl commands) is
definitely what to do first.

The TCT provides oversight for the maintainers, but most things are left
up to those people who step up to the plate and do the work. Those who
step up, we cheer on (except when they try something daft, natch!)

[The Maintainers and Core Team are overlapping sets.]

In fact, someone already did this:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/tclcsharp

In that case, all I've got to say to people is "if you want it, get on
and contribute". :-)
