3 About Jim-Tcl

OpenOCD uses a small “Tcl Interpreter” known as Jim-Tcl. This programming language provides a simple and extensible command interpreter.

All commands presented in this Guide are extensions to Jim-Tcl. You can use them as simple commands, without needing to learn much of anything about Tcl. Alternatively, you can write Tcl programs with them.

You can learn more about Jim at its website, There is an active and responsive community, get on the mailing list if you have any questions. Jim-Tcl maintainers also lurk on the OpenOCD mailing list.
