[Haskell-cafe] ANNOUNCE: hiccup, a toy tcl impersonator in haskell

some time ago I started a Tcl->C compiler in Haskell. It should compile
Tcl code to an Tcl extension.

http://wiki.tcl.tk/17385 (darcs)

Few tests (e.g. recursive from shootout) are much faster than Tcl
(original) interpreter but a lot of tests are slower. This is, because
the variable lookup is done with slow Tcl_GetVar2Ex. But at the moment
I'm a bit disapointed (about Tcl, not Haskell ;-) and don't work on it
