8.0 version

send-command

Arguments: client-port command-string &key timeout

Sends a DDE "Execute" message to this port's server application. Command-string should be whatever arbitrary string is expected by that DDE server. Many servers accept strings as they would be written in that application's macro language, sometimes surrounded by required square brackets.

Returns true if the command is accepted, and nil if it is rejected. The optional timeout argument is in milliseconds. If the command is neither accepted nor rejected within this timeout period, then nil is returned.

See dde.htm for information about DDE support.
