We really ought to have examples for every we have bindings for, but sadly
we don't at present (contributions most welcome!)

The tcl8 bindings originally date back to the BrightStation days.  James
got them working again fairly recently, but I think he said he doesn't
know much tcl8 (and I don't either).

If you don't know TCL, using C++ would probably be simpler:


The first sentence reads:

    User-defined functions can be written in C (or a language that can be
    made compatible with C, such as C++)
