CAWT is a utility package based on TWAPI to script Microsoft Windows® applications with Tcl. It provides high level procedures for automation via the COM interface.

Currently packages for Excel, Word, PowerPoint, Outlook, OneNote, Internet Explorer, Matlab, and Google Earth are available.

This extension was formerly known as TcomExcel and TcomOffice, but has been renamed to the more general CAWT (COM Automation With Tcl).
