The Command Block API allows you to run commands in a Command Block, using it as a peripheral. (The peripheral can only be used if allowed in the config, which is default to false)

Functions exposed by the Command Block:

Function Description
getCommand( ) Returns a string containing the command currently inside the Command Block.
setCommand( string command ) Sets the command in the Command Block. This does not run it.
runCommand( ) Runs the command inside the Command Block previously set by setCommand( )

Note

All Command Block functions are to be used after wrapping the block in a peripheral. example:

command = peripheral.wrap("left")
command.setCommand("time set 1000")
command.runCommand()
local currentCommand = command.getCommand()
