getcommands

# $EPIC: getcommands.txt,v 1.2 2006/08/01 03:22:01 sthalik Exp $

Synopsis:

$getcommands()
$getcommands(<pattern>)

Technical:

  • If no argument is given, the return value is a word list of all built in commands.
  • If an argument is given, the return value is a word list of all built in commands that match the given pattern.
  • Multiple patterns may be specified; the result is a concatenated list of return values as if each pattern had been processed individually. Specifically, any duplicates will NOT be removed.

Practical:

This is mostly useful for writing completion scripts.

Returns:

A word list of the names of built in commands matching the pattern(s).

Example:

$getcommands(*irc*) returns “IRCHOST IRCNAME IRCUSER”
