is there a Pascal statement that will allow me to call one program from another program


  • I think this will work (modified from Tp7-Help File):

    Errors are reported in DosError. When

    compiling a program that uses Exec, reduce the

    "maximum" heap size; otherwise, there won't be

    enough memory (DosError = 8).

    {$M $4000,0,0 } { 16K stack, no heap }

    uses Dos;





    {if you want to use dos-commands (like"dir *.pas") use the}

    {exec command like this: Exec('','/c dir');}


    case doserror of


    2:writeln('File not found!');

    3:writeln('Path not found!');

    5:writeln('Access denied!');

    6:writeln('Invalid handle!');

    8:writeln('Not enough memory!');

    10:writeln('Invalid environment!');

    11:writeln('Invalid format!');

    18:writeln('No more files!');

    else writeln('Unknown error!');
