BDK is the Bigloo(k) Developer Kit. It consists in suite of development tools
for Bigloo(k) applications. BDK requires Bigloo2.1a (or more recent) _and_
Biglook0.3 (or more recent).

BDK0.1 is an initial version which contains three tools:

  * KBROWSE a graphical source code browser which enables inspections of
      Bigloo modules, functions, variables, macros, classes and extern bindings.

  * KPROF a graphical symbolic profiler of Bigloo(k) applications. KPROF
      reports on percentages of execution time and allocations. KPROF
      displays information relative to the dynamic call graph and to the
      heap configuration of the execution.

  * KBDB a symbolic debugger of Bigloo(k) applications. KBDB is provided with
      usual debugger facilities such as breaking, stepping, resuming and
      variables inspection. In addition KBDB is a memory leak tracker. KBDB
      can be used to display by the means of graphic the live objects of the heap.

BEE. More precisely each BDK tool acts as an Emacs plugin. This, BDK
tools are directly invoked from the BEE which makes them largely
