NAME

       Tcl_RecordAndEval - save command on history list before evaluating

SYNOPSIS

       #include <tcl.h>

       int
       Tcl_RecordAndEval(interp, cmd, flags)

ARGUMENTS

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

       CONST char   *cmd       (in)      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    don't    evaluate    it.

DESCRIPTION

       Tcl_RecordAndEval is invoked to record a command as an event on the history list and  then
       execute  it using Tcl_Eval (or Tcl_GlobalEval if the TCL_EVAL_GLOBAL bit is set in flags).
       It returns a completion code such as TCL_OK just like Tcl_Eval and it  leaves  information
       in  the  interpreter's result.  If you don't want the command recorded on the history list
       then you should invoke Tcl_Eval instead of Tcl_RecordAndEval.  Normally  Tcl_RecordAndEval
       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.

       Note  that  Tcl_RecordAndEval  has  been  largely  replaced  by the object-based procedure
       Tcl_RecordAndEvalObj.  That object-based  procedure  records  and  optionally  executes  a
       command held in a Tcl object instead of a string.
