 Description: MIT Object Tcl is a dynamic Object-Oriented Programming
        extension for Tcl, featuring program styles, inheritance,
        meta objects, automatic method combinations, mixing of C and C++.
        Works with Tcl 7.[345]. Tcl 8.0-8.5
        The author no longer actively supports the tool.  However,
        a large user base for the extension exists at the mash
        web site, connected to "ns", a network simulator that is
        commonly used.  They have ported otcl to Tcl/Tk 8.0
        The version from Germany contains a set of fixes for various
        destroy problems discovered by Martin Andrews and Gustaf
        The usc site is Haobo Yu's port of MIT otcl to Tcl 8.0b2.
        The berkeley site is the site of a project which depends on otcl -
        they too have ported it to Tcl 8.0.
        See TclCL at the mash web site.  TclOC is designed to interface OTcl
        to C++ objects.
        Latest development tooks place at the sourceforge site 0.96-1.14

See XOtcl for an extended version of the MIT otcl under active development.

A paper on an extended version of the MIT otcl object extension is available at http://nestroy.wi-inf.uni-essen.de/xotcl/ . At least two papers have been published. XOTcl (Extended OTcl, pronounced exotickle) is a value added replacement of MIT's OTcl. It is an object-oriented scripting language with several new functionalities aiming at the management of complexity, like Per-Object Mixins, Filters, Nested Classes, Dynamic Object Aggregations, Metadata, Assertions.
