tcl editor or IDE (komodo?)

I've installed ubuntu-make, umake, but can't find a reasonable IDE for my 
tcl needs.  There's a Netbeans plugin which might use, or, if all else 
fails, resort to Eclipse.

The tcl page on IDE's seems woefully out of date and vague:

The most interesting, komodo, is closed source; I'm installing the open 
source, and free as in beer, komodo edit.  My needs are pretty basic, 
primarily to catch syntax errors and to nicely format tcl and expect with 
standard indenting.  Git I can use from the CLI.

Any suggestions or alternatives?  From time to time I've looked at emacs, 
but it never seemed worth the learning curve, at least for Java.  Perhaps 
it's a better tool for tcl...
