EEM Action Tcl Command Extension

EEM Action Tcl Command Extension

The following conventions are used for the syntax documented on the Tcl command extension pages:

  • An optional argument is shown within square brackets, for example:

[type ?]

  • A question mark ? represents a variable to be entered.
  • Choices between arguments are represented by pipes, for example:

priority low|normal|high


Note


For all EEM Tcl command extensions, if there is an error, the returned Tcl result string contains the error information.



Note


Arguments for which no numeric range is specified take an integer from -2147483648 to 2147483647, inclusive.


action_policy
