I made a samba-tcl extension a while ago based on samba, with it you can do
NMB lookups and most all of SMB (excluding printer stuff). It should make it
a lot easier to do the SMB stuff in your program, so if you're interested - has a link to the source.

BTW -- you don't need to use Tk with Tcl, and it has an easy to use C
library allow programming in C and Tcl.
