Running scripts

When you run a script in ACL, each command in the script is processed in sequence until the end of the script is reached. You cannot continue working in ACL while the script is running, and you can run only one script at a time. However, using the DO SCRIPT command, you can create scripts that run other scripts.

While a script is running, ACL displays the processing status and the name of the script, or subscript, in the status bar. When the script finishes running, an icon appears in the status bar indicating if the script ran successfully to completion , or failed . If a script fails, the line where the error occurs is automatically highlighted in the Script Editor.

If necessary, you can stop the processing of a script by pressing the Esc key, or by closing ACL.
