Do Command


do <expression> do "<command>"


The do command causes Oracle Media Objects to evaluate the <expression> and then execute the resulting string as an Oracle Media Talk command. The do command is useful for building commands whose operands are determined dynamically. <expression> is any valid Oracle Media Talk expression, handler name, container, or chunk expression, and <command> is any valid Oracle Media Talk command. Please note that the do command will be removed from the product in the future.


Do treats one specific line as a script and can be used to start a program, execute a command, or carry out any single line of Oracle Media Objects operations.
