Polybench® Reference
Sends the contents of an address to a Polybench extension.



The SEND_TO action sends an object in a project to a Polybench extension. Example of an extension is a PDF converter, or an image converter.

An Action may use a Value and an Address
Value: Name of the extension to send the object to.
Address: Address of the object, for example '$page.object'.



Which value you can specify depends on the extensions that are installed for your copy of Polybench. The properties dialog makes a suggestion of what you can select.

A common value is: [extension name] > [file name or file format] > [optional stream alias] > [optional other settings]

Example: the PDF writer extension.
The object that is referred to in the Address should be a page. The page will then be rendered by the PDF extension module and saved as a PDF document.


Address of the object that should be processed by the specified extension module. An address always starts with a $ (dollar) sign.
What kind of objects you can address depends on the extension module. The properties dialog makes a suggestion about that.

Synchronous or asynchronous

This action is performed asynchronously with data processing. If an action is
asynchronous, it is performed only after all synchronous actions in a sequence have been called. A synchronous action is performed immediately.
