Tachyon Agent Built-in Functions

Alphabetic listing of Agent built-in functions. Under this page are separate pages with full details for each function.

The Agent language includes some cross-platform built-in functions – think of them like methods available in a “global” module. The names of built-in functions are case-sensitive.

See the Agent built-in functions version table on the Functions and Methods Reference page to know the earliest version of the Agent in which a built-in function was implemented.

Agent Built-in Functions

  • HttpGetFile— A built-in function for downloading content (resources) over HTTP(S) via the Tachyon Background channel, or from an external web-server.

  • IsUndefined— Given a table as a parameter, this built-in function will output a table that indicates whether the input table is real and full of values or whether it is the result of an operation that produced nothing, which is different to producing an empty table.

  • Raise— A built-in function to raise one or more events.
