Package Scripts Pane

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

The Package Scripts Pane provides tabbed access to the four scripts that are held by the currently selected package. Most packages don't need to use scripts at all so, where a script is not present, the tab is marked with a red cross. Where a script is supplied the tab is marked with a green tick. The available script, and their functions are as follows:

 

Pre-Install Script

This script is evaluated prior to the installation of the package.

Post-Install Script

This is evaluated following the installation of the package.

Pre-Uninstall Script

This script is evaluated immediately prior to the removal of any of the package contents from the image when an uninstall has been requested.

Post-Uninstall Script

This is evaluated after the entire package contents have been removed.

Notice that the script are in Chunk File Format so that each separate evaluation is terminated by an exclamation mark.
