CALL calls one batch program for another.
CALL is a BATCH-FILE / AUTOEXEC.BAT command.
CALL [/S | /N] [/Y] [drive][path]filename [batch-parameters]
drive The drive letter, e.g. C:
path The directory, e.g. \example\
filename The batch file to be called
batch-parameters Specifies any command-line information required by
the batch program, e.g. test.bat
/S Enforces swapping of FreeCOM
/N Prevents swapping of FreeCOM
/Y Enables tracemode during execution of the command
When the called batch file is complete, the processing of the original
batch file resumes.
Batch files can be run directly from another batch file without the call
command, but processing of the original batch file will not be resumed.
CALL is a command internal to command.com
and needs no other file in order to work.
