NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     source - Evaluate a file as a Tcl script

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     source fileName

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     Read file fileName	and pass the contents to the Tcl interpreter as	a
     script to evaluate	in the normal fashion.	The return value from source
     is	the return value of the	last command executed from the file.  If an
     error occurs in evaluating	the contents of	the file then the source
     command will return that error.  If a return command is invoked from
     within the	file then the remainder	of the file will be skipped and	the
     source command will return	normally with the result from the return
     command.  If fileName starts with a tilde,	then it	is tilde-substituted
     as	described in the Tcl_TildeSubst	manual entry.
