Simply playing modules is pretty easy:

 package require Tk
 package require Tclmod

 button .browse -text "Browse" -bd 1 -command {

     set mod [tk_getOpenFile -filetypes $types \
             -title "Choose module file"]
     .module configure -state normal
     .module configure -state disabled
     if {[info exists module]} {
         ::tclmod::player stop
         ::tclmod::player unload $module
     set module [::tclmod::player load $mod]
