IScriptEngineEvaluate(String, String)

In some script languages the distinction between statements and expressions is significant but ambiguous for certain syntactic elements. This method always interprets the specified script code as an expression.

If a debugger is attached, it will present the specified script code to the user as a document with the specified name. This document will be discarded after execution.

For information about the types of result values that script code can return, see Evaluate(String, Boolean, String).
