Hi Arun, thanks

yeah I have been there, there is also another package called Mtcl which
gives the threading support to TCL. Then again TCL 8.1 says that it is
thread safe and version 8.3 has API in c as well as native TCL script
commands to handle threads. So it gets a bit confusing, i was hoping for
some actual source code ( preferably small) as to how these tie up.
