I have been a Tcl user for years, now it is pay-back time. I have made 
available the TIL (Tcl ICE library) on sourceforge.

TIL is a collection of Tcl-only libraries and utilities of general type. 
Most of these libraries and utilities originates from a number of 
projects where interaction was a key issue and where the applications 
being developed and deployed would run continuously for days and, thus, 
need to perform some level of introspection to check the liveness of the 
system in question.

In general, TIL has three major goals.

    1. Facilitate the development, deployment and surveillance of 
Tcl-based distributed applications and systems.
    2. Suppress the discrepancies between UNIX and Windows when it comes 
to administration and deployment.
    3. Demonstrate a design principle that consists in writing 
network-aware simple components. These components handle a single and 
well-defined task and an application consists of several of these 
components, assembled on one or several machines.

The home page (under construction) is at The 
documentation is tiny but follow the link to the manual for more 
information about the components of the TIL.

Hope this will be useful to somebody.
