Vlerq is a research project for data structures.
It ignores conventional wisdom and introduces another way of representing and manipulating data in software. The implications are quite far-reaching, and exciting as well as frustrating.
Vlerq is an acronym which describes the idea:
- Take Vectors
- Add a Language
- Make it Embeddable
- Use the Relational model
- Include a Query mechanism
Whether the result is worth leaving everything behind for is something only time will tell.
Speaking of relations, what is the relation between Tcl and Vlerq?Vlerq is the basis of Ratcl & Rasql, two work-in-progress extensions for Tcl -jcwTclkit Lite
is another development based on Vlerq.
