term::send(n) 0.1 tcllib "Terminal control"

Name

term::send - General output to terminals

Synopsis

  • package require Tcl 8.4
  • package require term::send ?0.1?

Description

This package provides the most primitive commands for sending characters to a terminal. They are in essence convenient wrappers around the builtin command puts.

::term::send::wrch chan str

Send the text str to the channel specified by the handle chan. In contrast to the builtin command puts this command does not terminate the string with a line terminator. It also forces an flush of Tcl internal and OS buffers to ensure that the characters are processed immediately.

::term::send::wr str

This convenience command is like ::term::send::wrch, except that the destination channel is fixed to stdout.
