Adtran router reboot via TCL scrip

I'm looking for some guidance on a tcl script to reboot a router should an interface go down. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thanks,

Brad

I used Activetcl 8.4.19 from activestate.com.  Make sure you select the free version package.  
This package.  After installation (on windows). you write the scripts similar to this:
----
package require Expect;
# telnet the to router and check interaface.  #If down reboot router. # need minor modification to fit your #Environment.  
spawn telnet $Router_IP;
      expect "user: "; send "username\r";   expect "Password: "; send "pwd\r";
      expect -re "#"; sleep 3 ; # the "#" here  is the prompt of your router      
      set expect_out(buffer) "";
      send "place the command to checkk routeer interace here";       
      expect -re "#"; sleep 2; set test_buff $expect_out(buffer);
      if { [regexp "down" $test_buff ] == 1 } {
            puts "interface status: $test_buff"
            send "reboot cmd \r";       expect -re "w\confirm";       send "Y \r"
      }      

# you can also use Linux completely, or cywgin for windows.
