Applicable release versions: AP
|Category||BASIC Program (486)|
|Description||loads the TCL command used to activate the program into a variable.
The program must be the program called from TCL. "TCLread" will not work when called from a subroutine or from "enter" or "TCL" statements. This statement allows parameters to be passed from TCL to a program directly without processing. Individual parameters can be extracted using the "field" function.
"tclread" is used to extract the file name and item-id from the "tcl" command line. The name of the program is "show". Here is a sample TCL command using the "show" program: show bp testprog program show tclread sentence filename=field(sentence,' ',2) itenname=field(sentence,' ',3)
