Can I run another Small Basic program from a simple menu in another Small Basic program, (It does not need to return!) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    Is there a way of calling another program from within a small basic program ?

    I dont mean run within it and then continue where it left off.

    I simply ideally I ideally want to create one program that only contains menu options and depending on the user choice, then to go off and run another program.

    If this is not possible..maybe I am getting over cautious, but does any one know the program size limit, if I need to put all teh features in one program ?

    Thanks in advance

  • You would need an extension that can start an external exe (may be any exe includng another pre-compiled Small Basic program, or even the SmallBasicComplier to compile source and then run it), such as LDProcess.Start in my extension.  There are also other extensions with this or similar commands.
