Abstract
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
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).
[1] http://www.di.ens.fr/~castagna/EQUIPE
[2] http://www.lri.fr/bd
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:
http://www.cduce.org/cgi-bin/cduce
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:
http://www.cduce.org/dtd2cduce.html
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
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.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Documentation
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
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:
http://www.cduce.org/manual.html
or generate it locally (make local_website). Note that the online
version is probably more up-to-date than the one included in the
distribution.
- papers about CDuce:
http://www.cduce.org/papers.html
- code examples:
In the web site:
http://www.cduce.org/examples.html
http://www.cduce.org/bench.html
In the distribution:

- the CDuce users' mailing-list:

- and of course the source code!
