Test Automation Programming Interface with Object Controlled
Authentication, TAPIoca, is a Tcl/Tk based automatic test
environment. It grew out of the need to construct automatic tests at
the system level that could send commands to a System Under Test
(SUT), get responses from the SUT, and control signal generation
equipment connected to the same SUT. Tcl/Tk was chosen as the basis
for this automatic test environment because of the wealth and maturity
of its "language" features, as well as its ease of extensibility.
