ASK number or list list


ASK causes the turtles named in its first argument to execute the commands in its second argument. ASK makes it possible to send commands to a turtle that is not currently active without making it one of the active turtles.

The first argument to ask can be either a single turtle number or a list of turtle numbers. To ASK a turtle it must be defined with the SETTURTLES command.
