2.1 Utility Commands

This section describes utility commands that aren't specific to databases, but are useful when dealing with automation. §2.1.1 Macro Definitions describes ways of defining new commands, §2.1.2 Hook Management describes how to append or prepend code to existing commands and §2.1.3 Arithmetic describes commands that allow you to perform arithmetic calculations. There are some other utility commands concerned with iterating through lists, but these are described later in §2.7 Iteration.


This book is also available as A4 PDF or 12.8cm x 9.6cm PDF or paperback (ISBN 978-1-909440-07-4).
