The commands work on the actuators to perform actions on the environment. There are commands that also work on internal system components such as: workspace, archive, time and timings, configuration and system. Executing a command returns:

  • ok if it was done correctly
  • nok: error description if not done correctly
  • data if it requires info or evaluate expressions.
