This article makes a distinction between a CAOS command and function. What is it, and is it generally agreed upon? - unsigned comment by User:Alexwatson at 13:14, 7 Jan 2006

Mmph, I'm not really awake today. It's really 'procedure' vs 'function' in CS-speak, with the base portion of them both being 'commands'. But 'procedure' sounds almost as stupid as 'for input' and 'for output', so meh, I don't know what to do. The CAOS documentation marks procedures as 'command' and everything else by their return type, but I don't think that really fits, here. Discussions I've been a part of before have used command vs function, but I'm not sure what's used in general. - Fuzzie 13:39, 7 Jan 2006 (UTC)
If we were doing it over I'd've preferred to use the CAOS docs' way as it's much more concise. I can't think of a useful way of differentiating in the current format. --Alexwatson 13:46, 7 Jan 2006 (UTC)
