Invoking Command Files During a Session

 

To invoke a command file during a session, select Tools, Command Files, Load Command File from the pull-down menus, and then select the directory and filename of the desired command file. An alternative to using the pull-down menus is to use the LOAD or CALL functions. LOAD("command file name") loads and runs the specified command file. CALL("command file name", n) loads and runs the specified command file n times.

 

Command files can be invoked from within other command files by using the @LOAD and @CALL functions (see descriptions below). To invoke a command file from a menu, simply include the LOAD or CALL command in the menu file; when the user makes the appropriate menu selection, the command file will be loaded and executed.
