Hi Mathias,

I ported channel access client for Python, yet another scripting language.
Python provides among others object oriented constructs and your code might endup

looking better than simple Tcl.
Note this is primarily intended as a command line interpreter,
you could plugin Tk and create GUI .. but I guess that brings you back to the
original problem.

you can get a preview at:

(note I've been informed other people have worked on python)

You could also consider loading the tcl OO extension (itcl), which helps a lot
structuring code,

Cheers,
 Matthieu.
