This paper presents extensions to the Tool Command Language (Tcl) that
have been designed to implement network management applications.
Using Tcl, we were able to make our network management applications
highly extensible. Experience has shown that many useful applications
can be written with a few lines of Tcl code. Site specific adaptations
are possible at very low cost. We have used our extensions to
implement smart network management agents that can receive and execute
management scripts provided by other management stations or agents.
