This package is distributed under the terms of an MIT-like License
(see the CDuce LICENSE file).
CDuce is a programming language adapted to the manipulation of XML
documents. It has been designed and developed as a joint research
project between the Languages group at ENS (Paris) and the Database
group at LRI (Orsay).
The current implementation has been written to demonstrate the
innovative features of the language and to validate design choices.
It is a research prototype, not a robust application. However, it has
been reported to work properly in a production environment.
1. CDuce command-line interpreter / toplevel
See the man page or HTML manual for usage.
When no CDuce file is given on the command line, the interpreter
behaves as a toplevel. Phrases are interpreted when the user type
";;". Of course, mutually recursive definition (types or functions)
must be entirely contained in an adjacent sequence of phrases
(without ";;" inbetween).
2. CDuce CGI interface
It is also possible to play with CDuce in a web browser, using the
webiface CGI interface (or webiface.opt) program. Of course, You will
need a web server with CGI support.
There is usually a running version at:
Some features are disabled in the web interface (including
file manipulation).
3. dtd2cduce
dtd2cduce is small tool that generates CDuce type declarations from
a DTD.
Usage: dtd2cduce <prefix> <.dtd file>
<prefix> is a string prepended to tag names to form CDuce type names.
The generated declarations are sent to the standard output.
dtd2cduce can also operates as a cgi-bin. You can access it using
the form at this URL:
Binary distribution
If you have downloaded the "linux static" binary distribution, you got
the cduce and dtd2cduce executables, the man pages, and the web/
subdirectory. To build the website, just do "make".
If you have downloaded the Win32 binary distribution, you got the
cduce and dtd2cduce executables. You can launch cduce directly or
call it in a command window. Files with the .cd extension are
supposed to be CDuce scripts and will be run as if you were running
cduce with the --script option. Files with the extension .cdo are
compiled CDuce files.
There are several sources of information concerning CDuce:
- we started to write a manual and a tutorial as part of the web site.
You can find the manual at:
or generate it locally (make local_website). Note that the online
version is probably more up-to-date than the one included in the
- papers about CDuce:
- code examples:
In the web site:
In the distribution:
Online prototype:
- the CDuce users' mailing-list:
- and of course the source code!
We'll appreciate any feedback (comments, suggestions, questions,
bug reports, ...) concerning the CDuce language or this early release
of the interpreter at
