%A - Play Back a Recording


With the terminal command %Aname, you cause the recording saved under that name to be executed again. This requires that your current library is the one in which the recording is stored.

If you issue the command %Aname while a session is being recorded, the recording specified with %Aname will not be executed but the command %Aname is included into the source that is being recorded. Thus, you can execute a recording from within another recording and concatenate a series of recordings to one another. However, you cannot have nested recordings; the execution of the recording that contains the %Aname command stops after that command and is not resumed when the execution of name finishes.

Further information on recording is provided in the section Natural Recording Utility in the Utilities documentation.
