My personal recommendation is emacs, it has a very complete tcl mode.
get the 'bin' or 'fullbin' .tar.gz files (tar and gzip for Windows
are included in the 'utilities' directory of the ftp directory).

After you un-tar, run 'addpm.exe' in the bin directory to make emacs

Whichever editor you choose, you should go into the Windows "File Types"
and change the 'edit' action of the TCL filetype to use the appropriate
