This function has been verified to work well for file and text services. Other types are also implemented, but not tested.
With plugin version 6.0 or newer the script name can be a script ID number. In that case the plugin queries the script name for the given script ID. This allows to call scripts by ID and avoid problems if scripts are later renamed.
