Load

In Mini Micro, the load command loads a program into memory from disk. Syntax:

 load path

This replaces the current program in memory with the MiniScript file at path. Caution: any unsaved changes in your previous program are lost without warning.

The path may be a full (absolute) path, or a partial path relative to the current working directory.  Note that the file extension (.ms) is optional in both save and load.

Examples

The following loads theMatrix.ms located in the /sys/demo directory on the system disk, and then runs it.

load "/sys/demo/theMatrix"
run

The next example shows a useful pattern when using an external editor to work on a program. After each edit (outside of Mini Micro), clear the environment, reload, and run the program with a compound command like this:

reset; load "myProgram"; run
