External call of Eviews program

Postby Mailu » Sun Dec 07, 2008 5:07 am

Dear Sirs,
I am wondering if it is possible to make an external call to launch the program written under Eviews (transferring some parameters if needed). It is simplier for me to do one part of logic under C# and then migrate to Eviews to finish calculs. I am trying to implement the combinations of numbers, it's easyer to do under C#, where the char[] type exists...
Any help will be appreciated.

Currently the only way you can call an EViews program is via the command line. You can add the name of your program as a parameter to the EViews executable (along with any inputs to your program). For example:

"c:\program files\eviews6\eviews6.exe" "c:\my programs\my program.prg"

You might be able to reverse the process and "call" another program from EViews via the spawn command.
