README: Eagle This is the Eagle 1.0 beta distribution. RCS: @(#) $Id: $ Contents -------- 1. Introduction 2. Documentation 3. Compiling and Installing Eagle 1. Introduction --------------- Eagle (Extensible Adaptable Generalized Logic Engine) is an implementation of the Tcl scripting language for the Common Language Runtime (CLR). It is written completely in C#. Superficially, it is similar to Jacl; however, it was written from scratch based on the design and implementation of Tcl 8.4. It provides most of the functionality of the Tcl 8.4 interpreter while borrowing selected features from Tcl 8.5 and the upcoming Tcl 8.6 in addition to adding entirely new features. Eagle is maintained, enhanced, and distributed freely by the Eagle community (which may have some degree of cross-membership with the Tcl community). The home for the Eagle sources and the bug/patch database is: with the Eagle web site hosted at: Eagle is a freely available open source package. You can do virtually anything you like with it, such as modifying it, redistributing it, and selling it either in whole or in part. See the file "license.terms" for complete information. 2. Documentation ---------------- The documentation for Tcl 8.4 script commands and syntax largely applies to Eagle as well. Additional documentation is a work in progress. This includes: A. The Tcl commands missing from Eagle. B. The differences between Tcl and Eagle commands, where applicable. C. The Eagle commands that have no Tcl equivalent. D. The managed integration and extensibility APIs. 3. Compiling and Installing Eagle --------------------------------- Prior to compiling and running Eagle, you must run the provided Strong Name Verification Skipping Tool (i.e. "Library\Tools\strongName.bat" or "Library\Tools\data\strongName*.reg"). This is necessary because [for security reasons] the official strong name signing private keys are not part of the public source distribution. Alternatively, you may choose to sign the assemblies with the strong name signing key of your choice. The sources may be built from inside the Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 (or higher) integrated development environment. Alternatively, they may be built using the Microsoft .NET Framework Version 2.0 RTM (or higher) command line build environment. To build for the Windows operating system, use the following command: MSBuild Eagle.sln /t:Rebuild To build for the Unix operating system, use the following command: MSBuild Eagle.sln /t:Rebuild /p:EagleWindows=false /p:EagleUnix=true To build and run the test suite, use the following command: MSBuild Eagle.sln /t:Rebuild /p:EagleRunTests=true There are a variety of other compile time options that may be specified when building from the command line. For example, to disable features which are known not to work correctly in Mono 2.0, add "/p:EagleMono=true" to either of the command lines above. Please refer to the file "Eagle.Settings.targets" for more information.
