My work related background
This web site is for the personal software projects I have
The first software project being release into the open
source comunity is the merge engine.
The merge engine works purely on data and the idea of
replacement. The language embeds into any other programming
language, text or binary. This version being released now is
implemented in TCL and implements only a subset of the full
language. The full language is effectively a set theory
language. The data is viewed as lists of tuples. These
lists contained named attribute data pairs. The data can be
either an atom or an expression in the merge language. The
semantics of the language allow for variable replacement to set
operators like cross product, intersection, union, difference.
This version of the code depends on the TCL lexer 'fickle'. The
download file contains the output from 'fickle' and therefore 'fickle'
is not needed unless you intend to modify the lexer. Information
about 'Fickle' can be found at: http://wiki.tcl.tk/3555
and the source code can be found at: http://tcl.jtang.org/fickle/
