Syntax MB
Location Minerva

Early versions of Minerva (pre v1.97) did not have built-in MultiBASICs and they had to be EXECuted from disk. However, you could make them resident by linking in the file Mulib_rext with the LRESPR command and then this command, MB would be available to start up MultiBASIC interpreters. This is not a very convenient way of starting MultiBASICs as you cannot pass parameters to the MultiBASIC, nor can you use the command to run filter programs.


This command is redundant on Minerva v1.97+, whereby MultiBASICs can be started up using EXEC pipep.
