Compiler and run-time for the AFNIX programming language

AFNIX is a multi-threaded functional programming language with dynamic symbol bindings that support the object oriented paradigm. The language features a state of the art runtime engine. The distribution is available with several clients and a rich set of modules that are designed to be platform independent.

A+ programming language run-time environment

A+ is a powerful and efficient programming language. It is freely available under the GNU General Public License. It embodies a rich set of functions and operators, a modern graphical user interface with many widgets and automatic synchronization of widgets and variables, asynchronous execution of functions associated with variables and events, dynamic loading of user compiled subroutines, and many other features. Execution is by a rather efficient interpreter. A+ was created at Morgan Stanley. Primarily used in a computationally-intensive business environment, many critical applications written in A+ have withstood the demands of real world developers over many years. Written in an interpreted language, A+ applications tend to be portable. . This package contains the binaries and libraries needed to run A+ programs. The A+ development environment is provided by the aplus-fsf-dev package.

It also offers shell programming facilities as an extension of BASIC. bwBASIC seeks to be as portable as possible.


programming language adapted to the manipulation of XML data

CDuce is a modern programming language adapted to the manipulation of XML documents. . Some of CDuce's peculiar features: - XML objects can be manipulated as first-class citizen values: elements, sequences, tags, characters and strings, attribute sets; sequences of XML elements can be specified by regular expressions, which also apply to characters strings; - functions themselves are first-class values, they can be manipulated, stored in data structure, returned by a function,...; - a powerful pattern matching operation can perform complex extractions from sequences of XML elements; - a rich type algebra, with recursive types and arbitrary boolean combinations (union, intersection, complement) allows precise definitions of data structures and XML types; general purpose types and types constructors are taken seriously (products, extensible records, arbitrary precision integers with interval constraints, Unicode characters); - polymorphism through a natural notion of subtyping, and overloaded functions with dynamic dispatch; - an highly-effective type-driven compilation schema. . CDuce is fast, functional, type-safe, and conforms to basic standards: Unicode, XML, DTD, Namespaces are fully supported, partial support of XML Schema validation is in alpha testing (and undocumented) while queries are being implemented.

Useful Extensions for the CGI Module

conflict-driven nogood learning answer set solver

clasp is an answer set solver for (extended) normal logic programs. It combines the high-level modeling capacities of answer set programming (ASP) with state-of-the-art techniques from the area of Boolean constraint solving. The primary clasp algorithm relies on conflict-driven nogood learning, a technique that proved very successful for satisfiability checking (SAT). Unlike other learning ASP solvers, clasp does not rely on legacy software, such as a SAT solver or any other existing ASP solver. Rather, clasp has been genuinely developed for answer set solving based on conflict-driven nogood learning. clasp can be applied as an ASP solver (on LPARSE output format), as a SAT solver (on simplified DIMACS/CNF format), or as a PB solver (on OPB format).


C language interpreter

Clif, a C-like Interpreter Framework, is and open-ended system for fast development of programs with C syntax. The program is compiled and if syntactically correct, code is immediately generated. The code is generated for a virtual machine. The virtual machine is a part of the framework.


"C" Language Integrated Production System

CLIPS is an OPS-like forward chaining production system written in ANSI C by NASA. The CLIPS inference engine includes truth maintenance, dynamic rule addition, and customizable conflict resolution strategies. . CLIPS, including the runtime version, is easily embeddable in other applications. CLIPS includes an object-oriented language called COOL (CLIPS Object-Oriented Language) which is directly integrated with the inference engine.

CLIPS common files and examples

CLIPS is an OPS-like forward chaining production system written in ANSI C by NASA. The CLIPS inference engine includes truth maintenance, dynamic rule addition, and customizable conflict resolution strategies. . This package installs the common files for the program. It currently includes several examples of CLIPS programs that can be used to learn the language and test its interfaces.

translates action languages into answer set programs

The coala tool translates an action language into a logic program under the answer set semantics. After being grounded by lparse or gringo, the logic program can be solved by an answer set solver such as clasp. At the moment coala is able to translate the action language AL, B, C, a subset of C+ and the action language CTAID. The type of input language can be specified with a command line option.

CORBA scripting with Tcl

Combat is a CORBA Object Request Broker that allows the implementation of CORBA clients and servers in the Tcl programming language. . On the client side, Combat is not only useful to easily test-drive existing CORBA servers, including the ability for rapid prototyping or to interactively interface with servers from a console, but makes Tcl an exciting language for distributed programming. Also, Tk allows to quickly develop attractive user interfaces accessing CORBA services. Server-side scripting using [incr Tcl] classes also offers a wide range of possibilities. . Combat is compatible with the CORBA 3.0 specification including the IIOP protocol, and has been tested to interoperate with a wide range of open-source and commercial ORBs, including MICO, TAO and ORBexpress. . Combat is written in pure Tcl, allowing it to run on all platforms supported by Tcl, which is a much wider range than supported by any other ORB.


compiled runtime in Tcl

Critcl takes a snippet of C, generates Tcl interface, sends it to the compiler, and then dynamically links the code. Checksums are used to only recompile when needed, so the build overhead really applies only once.

Berkeley v5.3 Database Libraries for Tcl [module]

This package provides a Tcl module suitable for accessing Berkeley v5.3 databases from within Tcl programs.


solver for quantified boolean formulae

DepQBF is a search-based solver for quantified boolean formulae (QBF) in prenex conjunctive normal form. It is based on the DPLL algorithm for QBF, called QDPLL, with conflict-driven clause and solution-driven cube learning. By analyzing the syntactic structure of a formula, DepQBF tries to identify independent variables. In general, information on independent variables can be represented in the formal framework of dependency schemes. DepQBF computes the so-called "standard dependency scheme" of a given formula. In addition to other benefits, information on independent variables often increases the freedom for decision making and clause learning.
