INS (Insert an Item to be Tracked)

This command provides a mechanism for inserting an Item into the Tracking Region queue. If an Item is to be inserted into the queue at a particular location (other than at the head or tail of the queue), the region location of the Item it is to be inserted ahead of is specified (i.e. specifying 'region_loc = 1', is equivalent to specifying 'region_loc = FIRST'). Defined constants are provided to indicate that the item is to be added either at the head or at the tail of the queue. The region location can be specified as FIRST (or also as EXIT) to insert the Item as the first (head) Item in the queue (i.e. this Item will be the next Item to transition out of the queue). LAST and ENTRY are provided to insert the Item as the last Item at the tail of the queue, BEHIND all other Items.
