tcl.options

Command tcl.options Definition/TCL
Applicable release versions: AP, R83
Category TCL (746)
Description discussion of the "p" (print) and "n" ("no pause") options, the only "standard" options available to every TCL command.

Options are special characters that alter the normal effect of a TCL command.

Options always appear at the end of a TCL command and must be preceded by a left parenthesis character. The right parenthesis is optional, as are "," (commas) between the parameters. This rule does not, however, apply to Spooler, dump, and where options.
Syntax TCL.command ... (n
