Example

// From Bioware's David Gaider Scripting FAQ
 
// I'm creating a custom 'ClearAll FactionMembers' command, here
// first declaring the api for the new command, then what it does
// I could reasonably have put this in a separate script and
// used #include to put it into this script (and others), as well
void ClearAllFactionMembers (object oMember, object oPlayer)
{
    object oClear = GetFirstFactionMember (oMember, FALSE);
    while (GetIsObjectValid(oClear) == TRUE)
    {
        ClearPersonalReputation (oPlayer, oClear);
        oClear = GetNextFactionMember (oMember, FALSE);
    }
}
// here's the main body of my script
void main()
{
    // identify the player
    object oPlayer = GetLastPlayerDied();
    // identify a member of the faction. I'm assuming these members are alive.
    // Otherwise, I would have to try several things to turn up a member that is
    // first valid and then do the if command
    object oGoblin = GetObjectByTag("GOBLIN1");
    if (GetIsObjectValid(oGoblin))
    {
        // adjust the faction relation back up by 100
        AdjustReputation (oPlayer, oGoblin, 100);
        // run my custom command to cycle through the faction
        ClearAllFactionMembers (oGoblin, oPlayer);
    }
}
