TKQML Agent Development Package

Tcl Adapter for Communicating with the KQML Language and Environment)

Welcome to the TKQML web page. We are in the process of finishing a major upgrade, so please pardon the confusion.

TKQML is a KQML application/addition to Tcl/Tk, which allows Tcl based systems to communicate easily with a powerful agent communication language. If you would like to learn more about TKQML, you can read about it in the following. These papers/posters will be presented at the 1997 Tcl/Tk Workshop in Boston and the 1997 Workshop on Agent Theories and Agent Languages in Providence, both this July. We hope to see you there!



TKQML will be available for download here on July 16, 1997. If you would like to be notified when the release becomes available, or would like to hear news and future developments, subscribe to Those who have already inquired have been added to this mailing list.



Many people interested in this package will have a good background in agents, agent communication languages and so forth. Others will not. Since there is such a vast amount of literature on a wide variety of subject, we will refer you to UMBC's KQML and Agents pages. There you will find information about KQML work here and elsewhere, current agents research and links to many other interesting sites. Those new to KQML should be aware that there are a small number of other dialects of KQML in circulation. Happy hunting!

Thanks for dropping by...

We hope that you have fun with TKQML, and that you find it useful in you current project. If you have any questions or comments about the package, KQML or developing agent systems in general, please don't hesitate to write:
