The COMMAND is a message type that can be used to transfer a command string structured in XML. While STRING offers a similar functionality, COMMAND has additional fields to include command ID and name providing an easy way to reference previous messages exchanged between the two hosts during the session.
IGSIO (http://igsio.github.io/) demonstrates representative usage of the COMMAND type.
|COMMAND_ID||uint32||The unique ID of this command|
|COMMAND_NAME||uint8[IGT_COMMAND_SIZE]||The name of the command|
|ENCODING||uint16||Character encoding type as MIBenum|
| | (defined by IANA). Default=3
LENGTH | uint32 | The length of command COMMAND | uint8[LENGTH] | The command encoded with ENCODING
