Search for a running application

I know there is a [dde services TclEval {}] function to find running TCL applications but, is there a way to find a non-TCL running application?

RE: Search for a running application

I have actually managed to find a way to search for all currently running application using a batch file and calling the batch file with:

set flag [exec test.bat app.exe]

The batch file searches for a running application called app.exe. If found the batch file executes an echo 0 and a 1 otherwise. This appears to work but it is clumsy.
Is there a better way to do this in TCL?
