25 Oct 05, SF project has disapeared, I have source code if anyone wants it -pwq.

An application which analyzes the bytecode for a tcl procedure and then generates an equivalent command written in the C language, for better speed.

It is available on SourceForge, see http://sourceforge.net/projects/kt2c/ (page not found Sept 28, 2011)

PWQ 30 Jan 04 The current version does not compile with gcc 8.3.2 and tcl8.4, this is because TclGetInstructionTable() returns void * and needs to be cast to InstructionDesc *. Also kt2c does not handle some of the new bytecode instructions.

Anyone know how much of a speed increase this gives (if any), the source code looks bloated for small procedures. I do not know if this is per function or per application.
