There are two: eznet and ezppp and I never rember which one is the one
I tried (there is hci in the author's address).  A very nice
configurator who handles like a breeze difficult cases and I know an
user who got connected first time he tried with it while he had been
unsuccessful for months with every other configurator under the sun.

Tcl is quite tricky.  Personally I find Python the best scripting
language available for Linux but we will have a language war here.
:-) You can use Tk or Gtk from Python.  The only problem with Python is
that you don't have the wealth of books Perl has.  You have only two:
the big one is a bit old and "Learning Python" is too short for in
depth coverage.
