This reference guide describes the InTime Tcl language. It is derived from Tcl/tk and uses similar syntax, notations and design rules. It is not intended as a tutorial. The list of commands can be displayed in the InTime Tcl console by typing “help”. The commands generally organized hierarchically and can consist of several consecutive command invocations. Commands are also variadic, as per Tcl.

Usage Examples

Multiple commands
To retrieve the project filename, three commands are required, “project” and “info”, followed by “file_name”

plunify> project info file_name

Multiple commands with an argument
To retrieve a summary of the job, two commands are required, “job” and “summary”, followed by jobID=2

plunify> job summary 2
