Received by an agent wishing this agent to execute a command in the agent's repertoire.

performative    ask
DDE message     Execute
:language       KIF
:content        ?content
:task-id        ?task-id
:address        ?address
The content of the result is not necessarily directly sent in the string, but there is an optional address string which has syntax similar to a URL, e.g. "file://c:/temp/results.txt", "clipboard", "ftp://ftp.aiai.ed.ac.uk/pub/incoming/temp.sql".

If the address is absent or is the word "inline", the :content keyword indicates a string containing the actual contents.
