Tcl_RecordAndEvalObj(3) Tcl Library Procedures Tcl_RecordAndEvalObj(3)______________________________________________________________________________NAME
Tcl_RecordAndEvalObj - save command on history list before evaluating
Tcl_RecordAndEvalObj(interp, cmdPtr, flags)
Tcl_Interp *interp (in) Tcl interpreter in which to evaluate
Tcl_Obj *cmdPtr (in) Points to a Tcl object containing a
command (or sequence of commands) to
int flags (in) An OR'ed combination of flag bits.
TCL_NO_EVAL means record the command
but don't evaluate it.
TCL_EVAL_GLOBAL means evaluate the
command at global level instead of
the current stack level.
Tcl_RecordAndEvalObj is invoked to record a command as an event on the
history list and then execute it using Tcl_EvalObj (or Tcl_GlobalEval‐
Obj if the TCL_EVAL_GLOBAL bit is set in flags). It returns a comple‐
tion code such as TCL_OK just like Tcl_EvalObj, as well as a result
object containing additional information (a result value or error mes‐
sage) that can be retrieved using Tcl_GetObjResult. If you don't want
the command recorded on the history list then you should invoke
Tcl_EvalObj instead of Tcl_RecordAndEvalObj. Normally Tcl_RecordAndE‐
valObj is only called with top-level commands typed by the user, since
the purpose of history is to allow the user to re-issue recently-
invoked commands. If the flags argument contains the TCL_NO_EVAL bit
then the command is recorded without being evaluated.
