This is a utility that allows OS/2 users to run OS/2 programs from a DOS session. This program has a "search" feature, in that;

  • the OS/2 program does NOT have to be in the path
  • the user does not have to type the .EXE extension

Examples of usage:

  • RUN OS2EMACS.EXE TODAY.TXT

      this will run OS2EMACS.EXE, and pass "TODAY.TXT" as a parameter to it.

  • RUN CKERMIT

      this will try to locate [a] CKERMIT.EXE, or [b] CKERMIT.CMD , or [c] CKERMIT.COM [d] CKERMIT.BAT, in that order. When any of them is found, it will be run. If no match is found, then there will be an error message.

RUN-OS/2 looks for .EXE .CMD .COM and .BAT extensions, so it will also run DOS programs.
