run program without opening program file

Postby cbonham » Sun Sep 23, 2018 3:38 pm

I am using Eviews 10.

It would be really nice to be able to run programs from the command line and not have the program file open in a new window. I know that we can execute programs that way, but execute requires a full path. An alternative would be an option for execute that allows it to make use of current path settings.

Right now I am using a workaround that stores path strings in a temporary workfile so I can refer to them using an exec statement like

exec {prgpath}mycode.prg
