I have this command

<?php snippets_value( 'fieldname' ); ?>

How do I add a PHP command within the command? I want to add a WP tag within the above, the tag I want to use is the_slug() so it would read:

<?php snippets_value( the_slug() ); ?>
Any help is appreciated as PHP isn’t my strong point

You’re going to need to elaborate on what you’re trying to acheive. Are you trying to concatenate the 2? grab a value? Append?

The only way that will work is if the inner function returns a valid value to pass to the outer function. Most WordPress template tags with the naming convention the_{tag}() print (echo) a value, rather than return it (get_the_{tag}() is often the equivalent function that returns the value).

If a function prints a value and returns nothing, you can’t use it to pass a value inside another function call.

first of all these are functions..

and <?php snippets_value( the_slug() ); ?> will work fine as long as the_slug() returns a value and not echo or print it. :)
