Inside the .py file, to return a value assign a result to returnvalue.

if not used("scripts")
	use scripts
endif
select scripts
append blank
replace script with 'for i in range(9):' + CHR(13)+ '# process commands' + CHR(13)
execpython(script)
 
// Text constant
execpython('for i in range(9):' + CHR(13) + '# process commands' + CHR(13))
 
// Memory variable
