About Command Scripts

A script is a text file with command or a script call on each line.

You can invoke a script at startup or run a script using either the SCRIPT or the
SCRIPTCALL command. The difference is that the SCRIPTCALL command can execute nested
scripts in addition to commands. With the SCRIPT command, if a script is currently
active when the SCRIPT command is invoked, the script is stopped.

You create script files outside the program using a text editor text editor that saves
in ASCII format (for example, Notepad on Windows or TextEdit on Mac OS). The file
extension must be .scr.

Each line of a script contains a command, and each blank space in a script is significant
because it is like pressing Enter or the Spacebar. You must be familiar with the sequence
of prompts for a command to provide an appropriate sequence of responses in a script.

NOTE:Keep in mind that prompts and command names might change in future releases, so you
might need to revise your scripts when you upgrade to a later release of the program.
For similar reasons, avoid the use of command aliases; future command aliases might
create ambiguities.

A script can execute any command at the Command prompt except a command that displays
a dialog box. In most cases, a command that displays a dialog box has an alternative
version of the command that displays Command prompts instead of a dialog box. Most
alternative versions of a command start with a hypen (-). For example, use -INSERT
instead of INSERT.

NOTE:On Windows, when using the -PLOT command to automate multiple plot jobs, set the BACKGROUNDPLOT
system variable to 0 before running the script.

Scripts can contain comments. Any line that begins with a semicolon (;) is considered
a comment, and is ignored while the script is being processed. The last line of the
script must be blank.

All references to long file names that contain embedded spaces must be enclosed in
double quotes. For example, to open the drawing my house.dwg from a script, you must use the following syntax:

open "my house"

When command input comes from a script, it is assumed that the settings of the PICKADD
and PICKAUTO system variables are 1 and 0, respectively; therefore, you do not have
to change the settings of these variables.

A script is treated as a group, a unit of commands, reversible by a single U command.
However, each command in the script causes an entry in the undo log, which can slow
the execution of a script. Changing the Control option of the UNDO command to None
will turn off undo recording, which will improve the performance of a script when
executed. Remember to turn undo recording back on (UNDO Control All) when the script
is finished.
