Two agent implementations are described - one for mail notification and one for news notification. Both agents are implemented using Tcl. This paper provides a brief history and perspective of similar agents. Included are experiences using Tcl as an agent-implementation language and comparisons of the results to similar agents. Also described are some new techniques of interest to Tcl programmers.
