kuldeek has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hi All,

I am writing scripts in perl and need to automate few IXIA related stuff. IXIA has TCL based API's. Can someone help me understand, how I can call those API's inside my perl scripts or if there is a way to write a wrapper for TCL API's in perl.

Regards, Kuldeep Kumar.

    What is the language used? If the API code is written using C++ you can use SWIG interface to invoke APIs.
      These APIs are plain TCL code. It is like calling TCL proc in a perl script.
        Then you could simply call the TCL code from perl using the TCL CPAN module.
