Multiply Command


multiply [<chunk> of] <container> by <source>


There are two ways to multiply two numbers: the multiply command and the * operator. Multiply multiplies the value in [<chunk> of] <container> by the value of <source> and puts the result into [<chunk> of] <container>.


The value previously stored in <container> must be a number; the value is then replaced with the new value.


put 5 into field "test" multiply field "test" by 6
