source(n)		     Tcl Built-In Commands		     source(n)


       source - Evaluate a file or resource as a Tcl script

       source fileName

       source -encoding encodingName fileName

       This  command  takes the contents of the specified file or resource and
       passes it to the Tcl interpreter as a text script.   The	 return	 value
       from  source  is	 the  return value of the last command executed in the
       script.	If an error occurs in evaluating the contents  of  the	script
       then the source command will return that error.	If a return command is
       invoked from within the script then the remainder of the file  will  be
       skipped	and  the  source  command will return normally with the result
       from the return command.

       The end-of-file character for files is “\32” (^Z)  for  all  platforms.
       The source command will read files up to this character.	 This restric‐
       tion does not exist for the read or gets commands, allowing  for	 files
       containing code and data segments (scripted documents).	If you require
       a “^Z” in code for string comparison, you can use “\032”	 or  “\u001a”,
       which will be safely substituted by the Tcl interpreter into “^Z”.

       The -encoding option is used to specify the encoding of the data stored
       in fileName.  When the -encoding option is omitted, the system encoding
       is assumed.

       Run  the	 script	 in  the  file foo.tcl and then the script in the file

	      source foo.tcl
	      source bar.tcl


	      foreach scriptFile {foo.tcl bar.tcl} {
		  source $scriptFile
