ZeroMQ [L1 ] is a light-weight messaging system with bindings for 20+ languages. A Tcl extension was developed for ZeroMQ 1.x, but has not been maintained. ZeroMQ 2.x is the current version of the library, with version 3.x on the horizon.
The goal of this project is two fold. First, update the Tcl bindings for ZeroMQ 2.x. Second, write examples for ZGuide [L2 ] , a tutorial for using ZeroMQ. ZGuide implementation exists for many of the existing languages supported by ZeroMQ.
