Tools for C programs

ctools is a set of useful tools for C programs including a resource database, a tiny interpreter, a set of utilities that extend clib, powersets of integers and chars, long-period random numbers, and Wirth's P4 compiler. It also contains Tinker, a Tcl-like interpreter that is small, easy to embed into a program, but not particularly fast (two out of three ain't bad!) If you want an extension or scripting language for your program, and don't want the whole Tcl package, Tinker will be a welcome tool.
