Programs

Programs take the form of BASIC files placed in a directory named !RunImage.

AppBasic program

The files are BASIC libraries, containing procedure definitions. When an application is run these definitions are appended to AppBasic's small, 'built-in', main program. BASIC libraries are very easy to deal with - just place a copy in !RunImage to make its procedure definitions available to be used.

Multifile editing

Multifile programs better reflect the tree structure of desktop programs. Editors - such as StrongED and Zap - have special features for multifile editing (used in languages such as 'C' etc). To supplement this, AppBasic provides tools for searching and locating procedure definitions in !RunImage.
