Chain from one program to another

Is it possible to run one program to start or select a process for instance, and then link to a second program to perform a task based on the results of the first program.

I remember doing this in BBC BASIC years ago and found it useful when writing long, involved programs.

"You can "Shell" another program passing arguments to it and access those arguments in B4PPC with the special predefined args() global array"

Can you shell to B4ppc with an Arg(Prog. Name)?

Sorry but I don't understand. Do you want to open the Devlopment environment with a certain source file in it or do you want to run a compiled B4PPC app and pass a string to it. If the latter then yes.

Shell("Notepad","c:\temp\file.txt")
