tcl-pam: PAM authentication for Tcl (Tcl package)

Post by Alexandros » Thu, 04 Sep 2008 01:16:47

This is an announcement for a relatively new Tcl project: tcl-pam

Tcl-pam is a Tcl interface to the PAM* service of Linux. It provides a
Tcl package that allows Tcl scripts to use PAM to authenticate users and
programs. It relies on linux-pam library:

* PAM (Pluggable Authentication Modules): A mechanism to integrate
multiple lowevel authentication schemes into a highevel application
programming interface (API). This enables programs that rely on
authentication to be written independently of the underlying
authentication scheme.

1. Extending TCL in C with tcl.h - Disabliing [<tcl-cmd>] feature - How to?

2. Running D3 TCL command from Linux occasionally stops at TCL prompt

I'm running D3/Linux 7.2.1 on Linux 7.2. We now have a process that
occasionally needs to get a one liner reply from a query on the Pick system.
I followed the examples in the manual, and for 99% of the time it works
great. The problem comes when the port that is used to run the TCL command
seems to be stopped and sitting at TCL.

My understanding of the "d3tcl" Linux command is that the process uses a
seat, logs into Pick using the environmental variables set previously,
executes the command, and is now suppose to log off.

Has anybody else run into this problem where the process fails to complete,
and found a way of ensuring the process will complete that you are willing
to share?

Best regards,
