system.multicall (public)

 system.multicall array

Defined in packages/xml-rpc/tcl/system-procs.tcl

Perform multiple requests in one call - see http://www.xmlrpc.com/discuss/msgReader$1208

Takes an array of XML-RPC calls encoded as structs of the form (in a Pythonish notation here):

    {'methodName': string, 'params': array}
    

Parameters:
array - array of structs containing XML-RPC calls
Returns:
an array of responses. There will be one response for each call in the original array. The result will either be a one-item array containing the result value - this mirrors the use of <params> in <methodResponse> - or a struct of the form found inside the standard <fault> element.
