Two methods for executing zbex programs from files on the hard disk and from another editing window are described below. Click here for a description of typing and running a program in the current window.

1 Zbex program executed from a file in the current directory

Let's suppose that you create a file called "TEST.Z" in the current directory, and that this file holds the following two lines of code:

     putc Hello World 
     run 

If you then type "zz Enter", and type "TEST.Z" at the "Program file?" prompt, you should see the following lines in your window (You may need to activate the zbex interpreter with Shft+KeyPad * first):

    zz 
    Current Library is <current directory> 
    Program file?  
    TEST.Z 
    ** S=2, P=8, L=231, M=410 ** 
    Hello World 
    Ready for program 

As before, the line with the numbers tells you that the program successfully compiled; the next line "Hello World" is the output from the program; and the "Ready for program" prompt tells you that the window is again waiting for you to give it the name of a program to run.

2 Zbex program executed from another windows

Suppose window 4 contains the following two lines:

     putc Hello World 
     run 

You can run this program from your current window by typing "*4" at the "Program file?" prompt. You will then see the following lines in the window:

    zz 
    Current Library is <current directory> 
    Program file?  
    *4    
    ** S=2, P=8, L=231, M=410 ** 
    Hello World 
    Ready for program
