Description

Description:
Creates a list of supported operators and type. Each field of array has the format: "x:name" Where x can be: 'name' is the operator or type name (in case operator, type of input operands is included). mask parameter can be an empty string, or one of field. In this case, function returns empty array, if operator is not included in the list. Limited wildcard support is available. Type x may be replaced with *, meaning all types. For the mask partial match may be used, like abc*, meaning any operators starting with 'abc' are reported, for example:
  • "" - list all types and commands
  • "t:*" - list all types
  • "*:<command>*" - list all entries for script <command>
  • "i:<command>" - extended information about script <command>, Array of Array of Strings in format:Since Arma 3 v1.99146528
    [type, lowerCaseName, camelCaseName, description, example, result, resultType, leftArgType, rightArgType, syntax (since Arma 3 v2.01.146751)]
"i:*" is not a wildcard but returns information about the multiplication operator instead.

To get the list of all supported commands in Arma 3 one can simply: { diag_log _x } forEach supportInfo "";

Since you can't use supportInfo "i:*" as a wildcard to get a list of all commands with detailed information, use this code instead: _allCommands = []; supportInfo "" apply { _x splitString ":" params ["_t", "_x"]; if (_t != "t") then { _x = _x splitString " "; _command = switch count _x do { case 1; case 2: { _x # 0 }; case 3: { _x # 1 }; default {nil}; }; _allCommands pushBackUnique _command; }; }; _allCommands sort true; _allCommands = _allCommands apply { supportInfo format["i:%1", _x] }; _allCommands
