I was wondering whether there is an easy way to get file
completion and history functions (cursor up/down) to work
in the tcl console.

For a simple tclsh it works when I add
if {$tcl_interactive} {
  package require tclreadline

to my .tcshrc, but that has no effect on vmd. Maybe I just
need to know the correct place where to put this in one of
the vmd tcl scripts ?
