I didn't mark this as [SOLVED] because I just want to check with anyone
that knows if this solution will be permanent and work with all systems.

First... it took forever for me to find a way to capture the ecasound
errors from tcl. When I did, it said "TERM environment variable not set."

In tcl/tk I set TERM to 'linux'. Nothing I read told me how to properly
set TERM. The subject is very confusing.

Two questions...

Will the value 'linux' work on all systems?

Is it ok to set TERM in my tcl/tk script that runs ecasound?
