Running .PRG files from part way through

Postby neilblake » Wed May 25, 2011 8:53 am

Is there any way of running a programme (.prg) file other than from the first line? If you could, it would be very useful for putting lengthy .prg files together

Unfortunately not (other than copying and pasting into a new program).

Can you get part way toward what you want by writing a bunch of separate files and then one master file that's just a bunch of EXEC commands?

I think I'll add it to the wish list. This facility was available in the Aremos package and I found that it was increadably useful for writing programmes and debugging them. OK, you can break things down to a lot of smaller files together but it can be a bit of an organisation nightmare putting them back together again!
