TCL(Tool Command Language) Scripting

Tcl as a scripting language for a Windows system admin


Anyone have references to articles and examples of using Tcl on a
Windows machine as a system admin? For instance, as a reluctant user
of a Windows system, I regularly encounter situations where admins
have to log into my machine, then become some specialized user, then
run various applications, then become sometimes another user, to do
some other action, then log off of the system.

Are there examples of automating this type of thing which, surely,
other sites are also experiencing?

Thanks.

When doing any scripting on Windows for administration purposes, TWAPI
(twapi.sourceforge.net) and WiTS (http://magicsplat.com/wits) are
almost obligatory first stops. TWAPI provides script access to a
considerable portion of the Win32 API, WiTS is an application built on
top of TWAPI that gives a centralized view into your system and
clearly demonstrates what twapi is capable of.

Using TWAPI in combination with COM and WMI (http://wiki.tcl.tk/15737)
provides a very powerful and flexible scripting solution for Windows.

It is a shame these are not included in the ActiveTcl distribution...

Here are a few trivial examples.
