Tcl equivalent for Perl's Win32::OLE, LWP::UserAgent, HTTP::Request, Net::Telnet

Hi,
In a Perl to Tcl conversion project, I am planning to use the
following Tcl extensions as a replacement for some Perl libraries.
My development environment is Windows.

Win32::OLE --> "DDE" or "OpTcl"
LWP::UserAgent, HTTP::Request --> "Scotty"
Net::Telnet --> "Expect" ('spawn telnet')

I have used Expect but haven't used Scotty, DDE or OpTcl before.
Do you think these Tcl equivalents will do the job?
Any experience notes using Scotty/DDE/OpTcl?

Thanks,
Vinay

Look also on tcom

: LWP::UserAgent, HTTP::Request --> "Scotty"

I'd rather use http extension from core Tcl and ftp extension from
tcllib.

: Net::Telnet --> "Expect" ('spawn telnet')

As far as I remember, there is pure tcl telnet module, so you don't
need expect for such task
