NAME
       eval - Evaluate a Tcl script

SYNOPSIS
       eval arg ?arg ...?


DESCRIPTION
       Eval  takes one or more arguments, which together comprise a Tcl script
       containing one or more commands.  Eval concatenates all  its  arguments
       in(1,8)  the  same  fashion  as  the concat command, passes the concatenated
       string(3,n) to the Tcl interpreter recursively, and returns  the  result  of
       that  evaluation  (or  any  error(8,n) generated by it).  Note that the list
       command quotes sequences of words in(1,8) such a way that they are not  fur-
       ther expanded by the eval command.


KEYWORDS
       concatenate, evaluate, script
