Purpose: To provide an index of pages related to various implementations of interpreters that provide Tcl-like functionality.

To get a list of pages related to Tcl implementations, click on the title above.

To add a page to this category, add a link to Category Tcl Implementations to the page.

"Category Distribution" largely duplicates this information.

Technically, a distribution is different than an implementation. A distribution is a gathering together of files into some sort of format for installation.

An implementation is, typically in computer science, the way someone takes an idea and builds a versions specific to their needs. So, for instance, Jacl, Eagle, and Tcl are implementations of the ideas that Dr. Ousterhout developed regarding a language that could be used as a mini internal language for applications. ActiveTcl and the source codes at are examples of distributions of the original Tcl implementation.

If these two categories are largely duplicate, then that means that one, or both, categories are probably misapplied.
