1996, "Mr D Walsh", ''Running two programs from a batch file'' (on newsgroup ''comp.sys.acorn.misc'')
- How do you get one program to chain another? I want to run DrawWorks2 then !Draw but as soon as you run Drawworks2 it finishes the batch file and doesn't go on to the next instruction! Is there a way without loading one of these automatic loaders?
