You are using bash, not tcl. puts is not a bash command. You should use echo, or printf.
Now the best thing to do is to calm down, look at the problem and write a detailed post of what you want to achieve and how you want to do it, in a way that people can understand. Use complete words and sentences. What is your problem exactly, what did you expect and what did you get?
