FET

Syntax FET(file *[,{filex | #chx}]* [;cmd$])
Location SMSQ/E

Executes and returns the job ID of the job filename in suspended state (by immediately setting the new job’s priority to zero). This function is a functional version of ET, with the same set of arguments, that executes a job into suspended state for tracing with a monitor. In addition to what ET does, it returns the job ID of the new job that was started.

Examples

jId = FEX ("win1_XChange_xchange")

Will start Psion XChange in win1_xchange in suspended state and return the job ID of the new job.
