Today, we host an interview with Jordan Hubbard regarding the DarwinPorts, speaking for the DarwinPorts Team which a similar effort to bring more Unix software on Mac OS X. Jordan is currently working at Apple and OpenDarwin (while many will know Jordan as the FreeBSD co-founder).

Tcl, embedding & RMS
by Clif Flynt on Wed 23rd Apr 2003 13:42 UTC

The usual trick for embedding Tcl is to embed the interpreter. It's C code with a clean API. This is the technique used by the EDA applications like Cadence and IBM.

Re: RMS and Tcl. To put his comments in context, at the time they were made Tcl was a couple years old, Windows 95 was not yet released, and the 486 was the hot CPU. Many things have changed since then, including Tcl. His criticism helped drive Tcl's evolution.
