Tcl_RecordAndEval(3) Tcl Library Procedures Tcl_RecordAndEval(3)
Tcl_RecordAndEval - save command on history list before evaluating
Tcl_RecordAndEval(interp, cmd, flags)
Tcl_Interp *interp (in) Tcl interpreter in which to evaluate command.
CONST char *cmd (in) Command (or sequence of commands) to execute.
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_RecordAndEval is invoked to record a command as an event on the history list and then
execute it using Tcl_Eval (or Tcl_GlobalEval if the TCL_EVAL_GLOBAL bit is set in flags).
It returns a completion code such as TCL_OK just like Tcl_Eval and it leaves information
in the interpreter's result. If you don't want the command recorded on the history list
then you should invoke Tcl_Eval instead of Tcl_RecordAndEval. Normally Tcl_RecordAndEval
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.
Note that Tcl_RecordAndEval has been largely replaced by the object-based procedure
Tcl_RecordAndEvalObj. That object-based procedure records and optionally executes a com-
mand held in a Tcl object instead of a string.
