[AG-TECH] .vic.tcl documentation

Hi, is anybody able to point me to a definitive source on setting up
.vic.tcl on my video capture machine?

I see an example on the Faq-o-Matiq pages, but that's only enough
to get me into trial-and-error mode, and I'm sure there has to
be a better way :)

The vic man page really doesn't seem to have anything on the
syntax/semantics in the .vic.tcl.  

What I specifically want to do is make sure my cams are set to S-Video
when they come up, and that they get assigned appropriate labels 
rather than just the default hostname.  Up to now, I do all this
manually when I fire up vic (actually, I fire up vtc, which in turn
fires up vic, so can't "easily" use the vic command line options).

In summary, something that actually explains the syntax/semantics used
in .vic.tcl would be real helpful!  Web searches have turned up empty.

Thanks, Don
