I do something similar: I use the "Handle" extension of TclX to generate
instance names and associate them with Tcl_CreateCommand() with ClientData ==
this pointer value.  See my code for Home Librarian and Role Playing database
packages for details.  I also have a method for actually implementing the
method functions for the class that is called be a static stub C function than
casts the ClientData pointer to the correct class type and then launches the
Tcl processing method.

 c++ class-method & Tcl_CreateCommand
I use Tcl_CreateCommand to create new commands in C. Those commands are used as callbacks ; what I would like to do is having the same fonctionalities than with an
"exec",  detaching the process in order to keep the interface happily running.

There is very little information in the books i have about the use of subprocesses; and it is relevant to subprocess created by exec and open.

Of course i am looking for a very general mecanisn, sort of a Tcl_CreateSeparableCommand, but any exemple will be very welcome...Thanks.
