About fucf

fucf is library of functions for Macromedia ColdFusion. Its purpose is to make available using a function syntax all the functionality currently only accessible as CFML tags.

The ColdFusion server can interpret two completely different scripting languages. ColdFusion Markup Language (CFML) is tag-based, while CFscript is somewhat similar to JavaScript. Many advanced CF developers prefer CFscript because the code looks cleaner and involves less typing. Unfortunately some features of the ColdFusion server are only accessible using CFML — these include major functionality such as queries. This has prompted some developers to write wrappers around CFML tags so they can be invoked as functions. The fucf project aims to provide a single library that is properly debugged so developers won't have to reinvent the wheel.
