1. GEM Execution Problem
Subject: Calling .PRGs from .PRGs
Organization: Dept. of Computing & Electrical Eng., Heriot-Watt University, Scotland
I've been writing a program to time other programs, splitting the results
into program time, Gemdos time, Xbios time, etc. The program uses GEM
and a resource file created with Wercs; a title dialogue is displayed and
once the user has clicked the button or pressed Return, a file selector is
displayed; from here the user can select the program s(he) wants to time.
This works correctly with TOS based programs (I've not tried a .TTP yet because
the program does not have a facility to enter a command line yet) and some GEM
based programs which use, for instance, only alert forms. However, programs
using resource files do not work; they display a 'resource file not found' or
such an error.
What I want to know is 'is it possible to run GEM based programs from a GEM
based program (and especially, ones with resource files)?' I'm not sure if
this can work, because Devpac 2's 'Run Other' menu option seems to have the
As a matter of interest, I did try loading Devpac 2 into my timer program since
its resource file is not separate on disk but actually included in the main
program file; it actually worked but could not locate Monst 2 from the disk:
this indicates something to do with the path, but I've tried setting the path
and I've got nowhere.
I hope someone out there can help. Thanks very much in anticipation.

P.S. If anybody has any ideas on how I can extend the program's options or
other facilities which would be useful, contact me as well; I may
distribute the program (if it works) when (or perhaps if) it is finished:
you may get a mention! Thank you in anticipation.
