Tentcl is a small hand-parsed Tcl interpreter. This project was undertaken
to better my understanding of the parsing and interpretation of programming
It is an old project which was started in 2006. It is by no means complete,
nor is it well-written -- it is more of a toy than something useful. It is
extremely and inefficient in its execution, uses only lexical variables, and
does not support much of the syntax of the Tcl language.
It is online for historical purposes only; although, in my opinion, the code
is rather neatly written. But I am biased.

In additional to the Tentcl source code, you will also need the
source code, which must be placed in the Tentcl root directory. e.g.
tentcl |- src/ |- mathexpr/ |- dstructs/ |- lineread/ |- Makefile
To build the
tclsh program, run the following. Run
./tclsh to run a Tcl REPL, or
./tclsh --help for other execution options.
cd tentcl make all
