LOAD Command

Purpose:

To load a file from diskette into memory.

Syntax:

LOAD filename[,r]

Comments:

filename is the filename used when the file was saved. If the extension was omitted, .BAS will be used.

LOAD closes all open files and deletes all variables and program lines currently residing in memory before it loads the designated program.

If the r option is used with LOAD, the program runs after it is loaded, and all open data files are kept open.

LOAD with the r option lets you chain several programs (or segments of the same program). Information can be passed between the programs using the disk data files.

Examples:

LOAD "STRTRK",R

Loads the file strtrk.bas and runs it, retaining all open files and variables from a previous program intact.
