Conditional and Loop Control Commands
All the commands in this section can also be used for the Conditional Text feature, in HTML job document files, e-mail attachments and body text files, and in ASCII files being converted to TIF. See the linked topic for more information.
The use of these commands in command files other than infobox (IIF) files is not recommended:
•When used in a USR or UJP file, the condition will be evaluated on loading from disk into the cache, and not before each call: so conditions should only refer to global items that do not change while CopiaFacts is running.
•When used in an FS file, the condition will be evaluated when the FS file is first loaded, and will not be retained when the file is written back for a retry or after completion of all attempts.
•When used in FAXFACTS.CFG, the variables used in condition statements are limited to those defined earlier in the file, a few system variables, and environment variables.
Despite these restrictions the use of conditionals in files other than IIF files can sometimes be useful. But care is required.
