The functionality of the SAPscript editor is made available through a set of commands that you call from the menu or by using function keys. These commands give you full editing control over your text. They are executed immediately when called.
There is, however, another kind of SAPscript command, namely the control commands. The purpose of these is to allow control of the output formatting. These commands are not interpreted by the SAPscript editor, but are passed through to the SAPscript Composer for processing. The Composer is the program that converts text from the form displayed in the editor to the form used for printing. This includes, for example, line and page formatting, the replacement of symbols with their current values and the formatting of text according to the paragraph and character formats specified.
The SAPscript control commands are described in the following sections.
