Packages for TCL scrips


Userlevel 5
Hello together,

how can I install additional packages (official build (like http or base64) not my own) for TCL?
What happens after an update if I use those packages?

Best regards
Stephan

Hello together,

as I learned from the GTAC this did not work.

Long term, Python is the way to go. The python interpreter is much more complete and it is possible to install modules on a switch. I spent a lot of time learning tcl/expect but I am moving on to python. It's a lot more fun and a much more marketable skill.

The JSON-RPC-Python scripting option where the python runs on the Netsight server and leverages a JSON interface to the EXOS switch looks very promising but doesn't seem to be well documented or much discussed.
