What this Project is About

This is a hobby project to write a functional Tcl interpreter for my own day-to-day use and with certain pratical limiations. These are; no threading (other than experimental) and no Unicode support (as I really don't need it). The goal was to make as small a possible exe footprint, have additional plugin module support built into the language and re-use a large library of existing ANSI code. It isn't intended as an alternative to the excellent ActiveState Tcl. The project is based on Salvatore Sanfilippo's 500-line "Picol" Tcl interpreter.  The final project weighs in at around 200 Kb as a fully functioning Tcl interpreter and with around 20 additional plugin DLLs

The HTML and RTF documentation is generated by the interpreter itself using a Tcl script and which shows the capabilities of syntax highlighting and handling moderately large amounts of data quite quickly
