EMACS itself can be found at
<URL: http://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/emacs.html > and
<URL: http://www.cs.washington.edu/homes/voelker/ntemacs.html > among
other places.

<URL: mailto:snl+@cs.cmu.edu > (Sean Levy) has hacked a version of Emacs's
C mode into a tcl-mode.el.  He mentions that you must use semi-colons at the
end of each statement to get indentation to work right, but he found that
easier than doing without.

The code is on <URL: ftp://ftp.cs.cmu.edu/afs/cs/user/snl/pub/ >
(don't forget binary mode) .

<URL: mailto:jules@kauri.vuw.ac.nz > (Julian Anderson) was also working
on an Emacs Tcl minor mode to fundamental.

<URL: mailto:tromey@busco.lanl.gov > (Tom Tromey) has contributed a tcl.el
which is better than his former tcl-help.el.  This is a modified version of
Chris Lindblad's Tcl editing mode.  This new editing mode contains the
help code, a tcl interaction mode, menus, font lock support, etc.  It
is available on the Emacs Lisp Archive at
<URL: ftp://archive.cis.ohio-state.edu/pub/emacs/elisp-archive/modes/ >
<URL: http://drip.colorado.edu/%7Etromey/src/tcl.el >.

<URL: mailto:schmid@fb3-s7.math.TU-Berlin.DE > (Gregor Schmid) has written
a major mode for tcl scripts.  He posted tcl-mode 1.1 to gnu.emacs.sources
in March and it should be on the Ohio State emacs elisp-archive - but I was
not able to locate it.

The latest version of xemacs (formerly lemacs) mentions that it has
a tcl-mode built in.  Use (add-hook 'tcl-mode-hook 'turn-on-font-lock)
to turn on color highliting.

Donal K. Fellows <URL: mailto:fellowsd@cs.man.ac.uk > has an extra elisp
library at <URL: http://www.cs.man.ac.uk/%7Efellowsd/tcl/#fontlock > which
provides enhanced syntax highlighting (font lock).  An alternative
URL mentioned was <URL: http://r8h.cs.man.ac.uk:800/tcl/ >.

Lars Magne Ingebrigtsen <URL: mailto:larsi@ifi.uio.no > has written Expect
functionality in an elisp package.   It is going to be included in Emacs
in a future release.  Email the contact about details.

David Schweikert <URL: mailto:dwschwei@stud.ee.ethz.ch > has written a tcl/tk
mode for JED.  You can download it at:
<URL: http://www.ee.ethz.ch/%7Edwschwei/jed/tclmode.sl >.


Other editors have syntax highlighting for Tcl.  For instance CRISP,
GWD <URL: http://www.gwdsoft.com/ >, and some
vi-based editors are frequently mentioned.  Also there is moonshine,
which can be found at <URL: http://www.rednecksoft.com/ >.

jEdit is a Java based Open Source text editor which has Tcl syntax highlighting
amount its features.  See <URL: http://www.jedit.org/ > for more details.
