                    V               |

Returns a result of invoking a method on the target object using the specified message name and arguments. The send() method allows methods to be invoked using dynamically constructed method names.

The [messagename] can be a string or an array. If [messagename] is an array object, its first item is the name of the message and its second item is a class object to use as the starting point for the method search. For more information, see .

Any [argument] s are passed to the receiver as arguments for [messagename] in the order you specify them.

-- the following 3 calls are equivalent
msg2=world~send("HELLO", "Fred")
msg3=.message~new(world,"HELLO", "i", "Fred")~~send

say msg1                  /* Produces Hello Fred 21:04:25.065000  */
                          /* for example                          */
