Latest Announcements

  • New ETAC Patcher Program 05/06/2018
    A new executable program, ETAC Patcher, can now be downloaded to fix current ETAC faults before the next release of ETAC.
    The downloads page contains the details of downloading and running the ETAC Patcher program.
  • Website Updated 05/06/2018
    The ETAC web site has been updated to include an ETAC Issues page.
    The ETAC Issues page contains matters concerning the ETAC system that need attention.
  • Website Updated 29/05/2018
    The ETAC web site has been updated to include a Gallery page.
    The Gallery page shows screen shots and other pictures relating to the ETAC programming language.
  • ETAC Released 15/05/2018
    The new ETAC programming language is released to the public for the first time.
    ETAC is a new general purpose dictionary and stack based programming language released for the first time on 15/05/2018.
  • Code Generator Work in Progress 15/05/2018
    Documentation is being completed for a sophisticated text code generator written entirely in ETAC.
    The code generator programming is basically complete.  The documentation needs to be created, and the system released as a separate ETAC program.  This program will use programmable template text files containing special descriptive codes and text to generate and update the desired text files.  The Code Generator will be ideally suited to generate source code for computer programs, but will be completely universal.  It will therefore be able to generate any text file from templates.  This is a substantial ETAC program.
  • ETAC Script Libraries to be Completed 15/05/2018
    Documentation for a few ETAC script libraries needs to be completed before being formally released.
    Three ETAC script libraries (etacFunctions.etac, CreateDlgRes.etac, and MemLook.etac) have been informally released in the form of ETAC binary code.  These libraries are required by other released utilities.  When the documentation for the libraries is completed, the ETAC source code for the three libraries will be formally released.
  • ETAC Graphics Work to be Completed 15/05/2018
    Work is being completed for a fully featured interact graphics system for ETAC.
    The C++ code for an earlier unreleased graphics system needs to be adapted and enhanced for use with the ETAC system.  The graphics system will be incorporated into AppETAC.dll.  This work will also include making ETAC Unicode compatible.
  • External TAC Library to be Done 15/05/2018
    Work needs to be done to create an external TAC library for file and memory access.
    This work is intended for the future to allow ETAC code to access file and memory data in a more comprehensive way than is available through the standard TAC library.
