RCX is the name of the micro controller used in the LEGO® MindStormsTM
See the side links for must read references about the RCX.
The goal for TclRCX is, like for a number of other projects, to ultimately have a development environment for the MindStorms, free of some of the limitations of the one provided by Lego, namely: TclRCX, like Tcl, works on Unix, MacOS and Windows; it will provide a more conventional programming (though a Tk based version of the visual programming concepts would be interesting...) with potentially full access to all available bytecodes of the RCX.
You can have a look at the very first and extremely preliminary code (rcx0.tcl).
Peter Pletcher started from the code above and made a much improved version. (We'll merge the effort soon, stay tuned (my new baby is keeping me quite busy right now...))
