Does anyone know how to write system commands in TCL. Commands like
tar, copying a folder etc. A tutorial link will be really useful.

For things that have native support in Tcl - like copying
files, creating directories, checking file status, exploring
directory structures - take a close look at the many options
of the [file] command. It has the huge advantage of being
completely independent of the operating system, so your
script can work correctly on Windows, *nix, Mac etc.

For things that Tcl does not do for itself, such as "tar",
There is a tar module in tcllib...
http://tcllib.sourceforge.net/doc/tar.html

lots of other stuff replacing system commands are in tcllib too...
