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.
Also see the Category Maintained Tcl Implementations 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 sf.net source codes at http://tcl.sf.net/ 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.
