From the developer:
EcoLab is a fairly complete agent-based simulation system, with the following features:
- The model is implemented as a C++ object. Support for more advanced data structures and algorithms are available through C++'s standard library.
- A scripting language TCL can access the model's methods and instance variables, allowing experiments to be set up dynamically at runtime.
