page_intro - page introduction


page (short for parser generator) stands for a set of related packages which help in the construction of parser generators, and other utilities doing text processing.

They are mainly geared towards supporting the Tcllib application page, with the package page::pluginmgr in a central role as the plugin management for the application. The other packages are performing low-level text processing and utility tasks geared towards parser generation and mainly accessed by page through plugins.

The packages implementing the plugins are not documented as regular packages, as they cannot be loaded into a general interpreter, like tclsh, without extensive preparation of the interpreter. Preparation which is done for them by the plugin manager.


This document, will undoubtedly contain bugs and other problems. Please report such in the category page of the Tcllib SF Trackers []. Please also report any ideas for enhancements you may have.
