Evaluating an API Request

The API request read in is evaluated according to the SubL “eval” protocol. More precisely, the SubL function EVAL is called on the form in order to produce a single SubL result. This result is outputted using the output message protocol. If a function returns multiple values, only the first value is used, however the SubL function MULTIPLE-VALUE-LIST can be used to gather multiple values into a single list.

If an error condition occurs during evaluation, the evaluation is aborted and a string representing the error condition is used as the result of the evaluation.
