typedlist

FM Using TclOO to create "typed lists"

What does it ? An object containing a type and a list.

Quick démo :

typedlist create rectangle
set A [rectangle -- 100 100 200 200]
$A get; # 100 100 200 200
$A type; # rectangle
$A lappend 300 100; # 100 100 200 200 300 100
typedlist create triangle
$A transmute ::triangle
$A type; # triangle
$A get; # 100 100 200 200 300 100

PYK 2014-11-06: Made a small change to make sure a value in generated code was properly encasulated in a list, and another small change to handle relative namespaces better.
