ccvs_command — Executes a protocol-specific command.


string ccvs_command(session, command, argument);
string session: ID of session to use
string command: Command to execute
string argument: Argument to pass to command


'OK' on success; on error, 'invalid request', 'syntax error', 'uninitialized', or 'unknown'


Various protocols implement their own commands, which may or may not be shared by other protocols. Since it would be unrealistic to attempt to provide API functions for all possible commands in all possible protocols, ccvs_command() allows you to execute arbitrary protocol-specific commands in a general way.

If appropriate, any additional results of the command can be fetched by using ccvs_textvalue() .

Set command to the name of the command you want to execute, and argument to any additional information required by the command. If the command takes no arguments, pass in a false value.

Consult your protocol documentation for available commands and their arguments.


PHP 4 since 4.0.2


Example 86. Execute an arbitrary protocol-specific command

echo "Executing a protocol-specific command:\n";
/* Note: your protocol is unlikely to support this command. Check your docs. */
$ret = ccvs_command($session, 'feedgoats', 'rolledoats');
echo "Returned: '$ret'; Return type: " . gettype($ret) . "\n";
echo "Textvalue: " . ccvs_textvalue($session) . "\n\n";
