Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference proceeding contributionpeer-review


This paper describes work defining and implementing a web based interface to a software package repository for extensions to the Tcl scripting language. A design goal is to allow access via a web browser or programmatically; this provides an interesting case study in the current REST/SOAP debate on the best form for web services interfaces.
