This command is part of the TclX package.
edprocs ?proc ...?

This procedure writes the named procedures, or all currently defined procedures, to a temporary file, then calls an editor on it (as specified by the EDITOR environment variable, or vi if none is specified), then sources the file back in if it was changed.
[TS] Use patch_edprocs_for_windows to make it working with WinXP.
