I've not been able to find much in regards to TCL other than the Cisco PDF "Cisco IOS Scripting with TCL Configuration Guide" and I just have a few queries.
I'm looking into potentially utilising this for pinging a range of addresses withing a specific range of DHCP to check for live hosts. (though this can be done via the broadcast address for our large sites it would produce un-neccessary output as well as ip directed-broadcast)
what I want to know, is if I enter TCLSH to write up a quick script to test the range I like, what effect does this have on the router - I.E
Does it create a script file in memory that is held or is it run and forgotten after i exit tcl mode?
Does the script cause any significant overhead on the router that is worth noting?
Less important, but something I've been trying to find - Is there any specific version that tcl was introduced to IOS as standard?
Cheers guys - appreciate anything that can be provided :)
