API rules
The commands are stateless. E.g. the telnet command line has a concept
of currently active target, the Tcl API proc's take this sort of state
information as an argument to each proc.
There are three main types of return values: single value, name value
pair list and lists.
Name value pair. The proc 'foo' below returns a name/value pair
list.
@verbatim
> set foo(me) Duane
> set foo(you) Oyvind
> set foo(mouse) Micky
> set foo(duck) Donald
If one does this:
> set foo
The result is:
me Duane you Oyvind mouse Micky duck Donald
Thus, to get the names of the associative array is easy:
foreach { name value } [set foo] {
puts "Name: $name, Value: $value"
}
@end verbatim
Lists returned must be relatively small. Otherwise a range
should be passed in to the proc in question.
