The hush library and toolkit is an effort to merge the best of multiple worlds, to combine the flexibility of script languages with the efficiency and robustness of C++. Indeed, as that language matures it may be regarded as sufficiently robust! For an introduction of how hush originated see Hush - a C++ API for Tcl/Tk. For a more recent account of the direction of our research see Animating the Web - an SGML based approach and our most recent efforts as described in Jamming (on) the Web that has been presented at the 6th WWW Conference in St Clara. Included in the hush package is an efficient discrete event simulation library that has been used for operations research and business modelling, as illustrated in Support for Business Process Redesign - Simulation, Hypermedia and the Web, which was presented at EuroMedia'96. A CORBA compliant version of hush, that goes under the nickname crush, is on its way. The newest version of hush contains also experimental support for the development of Netscape plugins on the Solaris platform. Developed under Sun Solaris, hush is available for a number of the Unix flavours as well as for Windows NT. See ftp.cs.vu.nl:/pub/hush/archive/
Over the years hush has become the effort of a number of people. These people and their contributions are listed in people(2).
