Tcl/TK support is included in Ruby from the beginning. I never used it
personally, but if you google around you will find several
resources. For example, a multi-language tutorial:

Thanks Carlo but I wanted to run Tcl scripts without the usage of Tk.

Am planning to store and retreive Tcl data from Ruby database

Umm… Would opening a pipe with tclsh solve your problem? See

ri IO::pipe

Please use tcltklib and tkutil directly.
For example,

require ‘tcltklib’
require ‘tkutil’

interp = TclTkIp.new(nil, nil)
ret = interp._eval(“source hoge.tcl”)
ret = interp._invoke(“source”, “hoge.tcl”)
ret = interp._invoke(‘lsort’, TkUtil._get_eval_string([3,1,2]))
p interp._split_tklist(ret)
