HELP LOAD Steve Hardy, October 1981 load <filename>; This command tells the POP-11 system to read (or 'compile') a file from long-term memory. The file must have been created earlier with VED. Note that -load- is a syntax word, not a procedure, it reads the literal text up to the end of line, a semi-colon, or the end of the current input stream, whichever is found first, makes a string of all the characters so found, and plants instructions in which that string is given as argument to -compile-. It also plants a call to the user-definable procedure -loadwarning-, which by default prints out a message saying that the file is being loaded.
