ls -l /usr/bin/tcl*
-rwxr-xr-x   1 root     root         4216 Mar 11 05:34 /usr/bin/tcl*
-rwxr-xr-x   1 root     root        12655 Mar 11 05:34 /usr/bin/tclhelp*
lrwxrwxrwx   1 root     root            8 Apr 13 18:04 /usr/bin/tclsh -> tclsh8.0*
-rwxr-xr-x   1 root     root         3988 Mar 11 05:34 /usr/bin/tclsh8.0*
