NAME

       Tcl_RecordAndEvalObj - save command on history list before evaluating

SYNOPSIS

       #include <tcl.h>

       int
       Tcl_RecordAndEvalObj(interp, cmdPtr, flags)

ARGUMENTS

       Tcl_Interp *interp (in)          Tcl interpreter in which to evaluate command.

       Tcl_Obj *cmdPtr (in)             Points  to  a Tcl value containing a 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   do   not   evaluate   it.
                                        TCL_EVAL_GLOBAL means  evaluate  the  command  at  global
                                        level instead of the current stack level.

DESCRIPTION

       Tcl_RecordAndEvalObj  is  invoked  to record a command as an event on the history list and
       then execute it using Tcl_EvalObjEx (or Tcl_GlobalEvalObj if the  TCL_EVAL_GLOBAL  bit  is
       set  in  flags).   It returns a completion code such as TCL_OK just like Tcl_EvalObjEx, as
       well as a result value containing additional information (a result value or error message)
       that  can be retrieved using Tcl_GetObjResult.  If you do not want the command recorded on
       the history list then you should invoke  Tcl_EvalObjEx  instead  of  Tcl_RecordAndEvalObj.
       Normally  Tcl_RecordAndEvalObj  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.
