Silicon Office Command Language

SILICON OFFICE frees the user from having to learn a variety of different, complex macros depending on which utility they are using. This is accomplished by providing simple, English like commands.

A set comprising of 28 different commands operate on the different utilities of Silicon Office. This may seem a small number but their power is more than adequate and they are user friendly. The commands GET, EDIT, CREATE, DELETE, PRINT, STORE are used to manipulate or operate on, the word processing documents, databases, user interface screens, working storage area and command scripts.

The location of your files can be on your local computer, a shared server machine over your local area network, or on your web server over the internet.

Silicon Office commands can be entered and executed singularly or one after the other in sequence when stored within a command script and the script executed, using the EXECUTE command. Most of the commands are also presented as menu options.

Special extensions can be 'tagged on' to some of the commands to enhance their power. This allows you to use techniques such as conditional branching and changing the direction of a script depending on a count or some other variable - and error trapping - using a forced error like the end of a file as an indication to stop doing one thing and start another.
