Tcl was *originally intended* as just such a minimal scripting
language (hence the name, standing for Tool Command Language), but
unfortunately it's gotten steadily less minimal as it has evolved and
grown over the years. A more-or-less current Tcl on an x86 approaches
half a megabyte.
Tcl 7.4, from approximately the time of the Ousterhout book, was only
about 100KB (again, on an x86) and might be suitable, especially with some
paring down. You should still be able to find it.
When failure is not an option, success | Henry Spencer email@example.com
can get expensive. -- Peter Stibrany | (aka firstname.lastname@example.org)
