tcloutr: tclout with return value

Syntax:           tcoutr <option> [<par1>] [<par2>] [<par3>]>

tcloutr  is identical to the tclout command except that it also provides what is stored in $xspec_tclout  as a return value.  Therefore it can be used in tcl scripts like this:


set var1 [tcloutr energies 1]


tcloutr may produce quite a lot of unwanted screen output, which can be avoided by using tclout
