    when creating a menu via Arexx for Ambient there is this form:
    'menu add id="m1-1-1" parentid="m1-1-0" title="String" type=item command="PATH" commandtype=TYPE'

    where type can be AMIGADOS, WORKBENCH, INTERNAL.

    My question is: What effect does this selection have? What is the difference behind the TYPEs?

    type selects how the command string is interpretted:
    internal - ambient internal rexx command. just like 'menu ...' or 'loaduri'.
    amigados - path to normal executable or script to be executed in dos mode (taking parameters in command line)
    workbench - similar to amigados but executes command in workbench mode (tooltypes from icon)
