EXE files can be saved on the DOS device (QEmuLator style) and file extensions are automatically converted ("_bas" vs ".bas").

Hi Marcel,

what I am missing, is a solution to start a SBASIC program from Assembler (or C68). Or is this possible, if it must NOT run in Job 0,0 (but may start a new MultiBASIC job)?

SBASIC is implemented as a Thing, so to start it you need to TH_EX it. This is not all that simple to explain. Perhaps someone here has a ready made solution?

Have a look at WIN1_smsq_sbas_fileinfo_asm of the SMSQ/E sources (from label sbfi_do), it shows how to execute the SBASIC thing. Some more usage info is in the SMSQ/E manual. I don't have any better example I'm afraid.
