Scripting extends Rhino functionality.
All Rhino commands can be used in command macros. Command macros can be run by typing the command at the command prompt, from toolbar buttons, shortcut keys, command aliases, from the ReadCommandFile command, or using the Paste command into Rhino's command stream.
Some commands are provided to facilitate scripting actions usually performed through the Rhino interface.
