This tcllib module contains code to make handling of sub-processes from within a testsuite easier to implement.

AK: To make it clear, this is purely experimental code, for use during development of Tcllib itself (test suite), and will by no means be released anytime soon. Actually there are ideas floating around to simplify this code a lot, to the point of possibly removing it, and using 'comm' for the communication with sub-processes instead of a pipe. Setting up a subprocess which runs comm is much easier than using devtools, as was found out when writing part of the test suite for tie, based on the one for comm.
